Lachine Canal

Of all the places to find some decent fall colors, i found them in my backyard….. well, not literally.  I only had to drive a few minutes and we were at the Atwater Market.  A few feet from the market, there is the Lachine Canal, which makes for some really nice photos.

I used the XP1 & the 35mm for these photos.

It was nice that the water was so calm; therefore, giving me some really nice reflections.

All along the canal, there are condos (overpriced apartments) and condo developments.  I suppose on the one hand, it’s a good thing that they are doing something with the are.  If not, it would be a bit of a wasteland.  However, it would be nice if they could build some other than condos, like low-cost housing.  That will never happen though.

We were lucky that the rain held off while we were down there.  As it turned out, the sun came out later in the afternoon.
