Photography: Montreal Day 2: 11/16/22

Now, if you’ve been frequenting this site over the better part of the past month, you might recall that earlier this month, I went off to Montreal, to cover M for Montreal (M pour Montreal in French), an annual conference and festival, which takes place over the course of four days in late November in Canada’s second largest city. Since the inaugural edition back in 2005, M for Montreal quickly expanded to feature a selection of over 100 emerging, buzz-worthy and/or breakout acts from across Francophone Canada (Quebec, New Brunswick and parts of Ontario), the rest of Canada and a selection of international acts playing in showcases in Montreal’s top venues. 

On my second day in town, it had snowed roughly four to five inches or so. I hadn’t been to Montreal when it had snowed — until now. And it was just gorgeous to look at.

I had missed the hotel breakfast, so I decided to take a walk to Complexe Desjardins, a massive mall, hotel, food and mixed-used complex on Rue Saint Catherine. I saw the menu at Eggspectation and I knew I needed a breakfast poutine to start my day. Of course, I had my Canon 6D Mark II with me for photos.
