The evening stroll

Oct 18, 2020
I loved aimlessly wandering around Old Quebec. It is such a walkable old city with loads of alleyways, cul-de-sacs, side streets and places to people watch. This is the Rue du Cul de Sac in Lower Town, looking up to Le Chateau Frontenac at dusk.

I saw this scene and it took me back to the 1940s and 50s film noire scenes and I wanted to create that look here. The walking along the street was a happy accident that turned a photograph into a story.

I have this photo on my dining room wall

Wonderful image in b&w!
Really looks like it came straight out of a Film Noir.
Thanks so much. Thst scene spoke to me the minute I saw it. I imagined that was Lauren Bacall walking along that street. I could almost have put a soundtrack to it.
