These shots were taken from the top of the Citadelle in Old Quebec City. We'll talk about the Citadelle another day.
We were so high up, overlooking the Saint Lawrence River, that we were level with some of the highest rooftops in the city center.
But, not all of them of course. You remember the Chateau Frontenac. How could you forget?
Edifice Price, or the Price Building is the oldest and tallest historic building in Quebec City. I love the golden leaves in the foreground. And notice the provincial flag of Quebec flying from the tipity-top.
This one is the Parliament Building and so deliciously French. Old grey stone and zinc Mansard roofs. And there is that flag again, flying proudly. It is a favorite of mine because it has four fleur-de-lis at each corner of the flag.
The row of houses here remind me of the small streets of Butte Montmartre in Paris.
I love this slender church steeple of the Chalmers-Wesley United Church, behind the Autumn Leaves. The website I have linked to is accepting donations for work that desperately needs to be done.
The steeple disappears into the clouds, reaching for the heavens. The amber-colored leaves highlight the metal which has rusted from wear-and-tear on the old steeple.
Where have you been where the rooftops have reminded you of Paris?
And if you like these pictures, and my other pictures on the blog, head on over to my Flickr account. You may have noticed my new Flickr badge on the sidebar. I have been hard at work uploading and creating a new Flickr account to hold all of my photos.
Of course, I have a lot more work to do, but you can find pictures of Paris, Canada, Newport, Food and the Hudson Valley. I still have more Paris pics and all of my Italy pics to upload, I'll wind up with more than 2,000 photos when I am done, but have a look around and make sure you come back as I will be consistently adding more photos.
And if you really feel like spreading the love and are a Flickr member yourself- you can always add me as a friend and contact.
Happy Flickr-in Friends!
