One of the many charming back lanes in beautiful Montreal. This one captured a few winters ago.

Rock and football photographer at heart, I love the excitement and pressure of the action.
Started shooting seriously back in ‘98 when my lens had the privilege to meet the music of Shane MacGowan head on. It gave me direction, self-confidence, and a means of expression. Many concerts later, I had the opportunity to shoot something completely different – football (soccer). I now have two addictions. :)) It’s the faces, the expressions, I seek… the atmosphere.

    Lovely moody image!

  • Hey Berns… thanks! These lanes actually give the city a bit of a country feel sometimes.

    Wonderful image. Almost timeless.

  • Thanks Gene! Yes, you’re right about it being timeless. This lane must be around since the 20’s or 30’s. It’s in the Monkland Village in NDG.

    Beautiful black and white image – I love the depth. We have lots of old laneways around here, but the trees are not so bare and our winters not so cold :)

  • Although by our standards we have had a relatively ‘good’ winter, I am looking forward to Spring. :)) Thanks very much for commenting Melissa. Glad you like it.
