Festivals

Photo taken at various Montreal festivals.

L’International des Feux, Montreal

A tragic thing happened to me last month, I was going to sort through my L’International des Feux photos to get this post ready and I realized that I had never taken the photos off my camera and put them on my computer and of course as they were taken at the beginning of July my SD card in my camera had long been reformatted and those photos lost forever. I was heartbroken. Mostly because as much I love taking photos of fireworks I’m definitely not amazing at it and that night I had all the right settings and they shots were really exciting and so much better than previous photos. I was really excited to experiment more and improve but sadly that night was one of the only nights I went to L’International des Feux.  Thankfully the night I took them I had put 5 of them on my computer to share so I do have those (5 outta 146 – sad face). There was also 1 last show that happened after I realized my goof so I did take a few there as well to share, they aren’t super exciting as the last show is always a musical tribute and since it’s not a part of the competition it’s pretty tame but I’m pretty happy with them. Next year! I’m ready for next year. Anyways enjoy my shots of ….L International des Feux, Montreal (20)L International des Feux, Montreal (5)L International des Feux, Montreal (7)L International des Feux, Montreal (3)L International des Feux, Montreal (7)L International des Feux, Montreal (17)L International des Feux, Montreal (14)L International des Feux, Montreal (12)L International des Feux, Montreal (11)L International des Feux, Montreal (4)L International des Feux, Montreal (4)L International des Feux, Montreal (6)

The 2nd night we went there was too much glare from the fireworks to take photos so I ended up taking a bunch of videos and stuck them all together… [media url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHPESNiPPpo”]

We Are Wolves at Festival Atmosph’air

we are wolves (5)Last Friday I went to go the Festival Atmosph’air that was happening here in Montreal near the Jean Talon Market. It was a street festival with stalls and food carts plus live bands all weekend long. My favourite local band, We are Wolves happened to be playing so I headed down there for a few hours to watch them play and see what was going on. I managed to take some photos of them preforming that I thought I’d share. It was a great show and it was so fun just to dance in the evening breeze before heading downtown for sushi. It’s so fun watching them play as they get so into the music and the newish drummer Pierre-Luc just goes apeshit which I love to watch.

Another Year of Piknic Electronik

Another year of Piknic Electronik, another summer of dancing and having a good time out in the sun enjoying Montreal in a way you only can at Piknic. This year marks my 5th year of attending Piknic Electronik which officially kicked off on May 18th. The first weekend I’ll be going to is this weekend for my favourite event Mutek at Piknic. Beyond excited to get out there and dance with friends. I didn’t pick up a season pass this year since the line-up isn’t as stellar as it has been in the past and work likes to make me work on Sundays (boo) but I am sure I’ll be spending a good deal of time dancing my ass off there all summer. I just may not be going as often as I’d like. I thought today I’d go down memory lane and share photos from the Mutek event 2 years ago at Piknic when my friend Brent was visiting in town and a lot of my friends were still living here (miss those guys so fucking much, the old Piknic crew just doesn’t exist anymore). If you are not from Montreal but live close enough to road trip here I highly suggest checking out Piknic Electronik – it`s usually every Sunday and it`s a great atmosphere.

Fête des Neiges

fete des neiges (4)Fête des Neiges happened at the beginning of February which was forever ago but I kept putting off sorting through my massive folder of photos. I honestly didn’t even think these would still be relevant this late in March but yup there is still a few feet of snow on the ground and its -10 in Montreal. It’s a fun festival and there was a lot of things to do…most of them are for little kids but me and Victor still enjoyed going to have a walk around. Thought I’d share our fun weekend day freezing our ass off and celebrating snow!

Double Exposure: Winter Wonderland

double exposures (23)double exposures (17)I’ve being doing a lot of double exposures this winter as they are really fun during this season since there is so much white space to play around with. It’s hard in some cases like landscape shots but I find doing upside down second exposure is a great work around if you have the sky (ie too much light) in your first shot. If you have never taken an upside down double exposure (no idea if there is some fancy name for this method) it’s exactly what you think it is. You basically take one shot regularly and then flip the camera so it’s upside down for your second exposure. It helps minimize the white space as the ground is now the sky and I find that middle ground area ends up getting really neat geometric patterns in it (great for sunsets). Examples of this are all over these shots, see if you can tell which ones are taken with this method ( I’ll give you a tip –  the first one is ).  There are a few too many photos today that are kinda the same but I really like all the variations.

I went a little crazy and ended up with over 200 photos from my trip to Parc Jean-Drapeau for the Fete Des Neiges festival (still haven’t posted photos from the event either).  I am so bad about posting photos around the same time I take them because of this – my procrastination for photo sorting is my weakness.

Nuit Blanche

nuit blanche (8)Nuit Blanche is a super fun festival we have in Montreal where for 1 winter day and night you can go around to the city to all these museums, café’s, art galleries and more to see artwork, participate in activities, see bands and so much more. I love it even though the last few years I haven’t put much effort into finding activities to do for the whole night up until the 3am cut-off. We actually spent more time checking the Montreal en Lumiere festival that we hadn’t had a chance to see yet instead of seeing art….

nuit blanche (6)nuit blanche (5)nuit blanche (11)We arrived and of course it’s packed with people and snow heavily.

nuit blanche (19) nuit blanche (18)There was a laser show that you stood on a stage for a few minutes and had stuff just come at you, you could just stand beside the stage and see the whole thing anyways.

nuit blanche (21)You could have your face projected onto the side of the building, it was really trippy.

nuit blanche (20)nuit blanche (3) nuit blanche (2)I’ve never done the Milk Run but I’ve always wanted to. The line was too huge though, same for the ferris wheel which I go on every year. The next day we wanted to go back as the Montreal en Lumiere festival had one more day left but we were way too tired and lazy.

nuit blancheMy favorite band, We Are Wolves was playing for free though at the Cinémathèque Québécoise so I dragged him there after checking out the festival area. They room had amazing ballooons attached to the ceiling.

nuit blanche (1)Victor is a little pissed at me because he wanted to go to the Belgo building which we went to on our first Nuit Blanche years ago that had 4 levels of art studios to check out (we were actually a block away from the  Belgo building earlier) and they ended up playing at 12am instead of their supposed time. We ended up waiting around for an hour and a half and they played a full hour set. I looked online while we were waiting and it said the other events will go on to 3am but by the time the concert was over and we had walked there…there was literally no art studios open. :( Let’s just say we were a little bummed about it.

nuit blanche (4)These photos lack any art at all except the last photo which was on a wall at the Belgo building. The We Are Wolves photos that will be on next Thursday post!

Ps. This was actually posted on Friday night at 11pm because I hadn’t finished it by Wednesday night and then I got really drunk with my co-workers have an extra shitty shift at work and was too hung over all of Thursday for blogging)

Igloofest with Holga Tim

holga tim (16)Igloofest is officially over in Montreal and now I have to wait another year to go dancing in freezing temperatures. We only managed to go once which was too bad but I wasn’t able to convince Victor to go out again. The DJs change every year so some years there just isn’t a reason to go that often. I have some crazy memories of Igloofest, so I decided to look back at photos I’ve taken there and found ones from 2012 that I took with my Holga Tim. They are pretty bad, I think this was the first time I ever used the Holga Tim with the flash. I like the abstract ones with the distorted lights. I defiantly need more practice using my Holga Tim with flash, I am usually not a big fan of using flash but it’d be good to learn because it’s nice bring toy cameras to events like these where I’m worried about damaging my Nikon camera holga tim (33)holga tim (41) holga tim (25) holga tim (35) holga tim (29)these were taken the same month on my trip to Toronto in 2012 so I thought I’d share them as well

Igloofest Instants

igloofest (8)Igloofest has been happening here in Montreal for the last few weeks and it’s been amazing freezing my ass off in the cold dancing to EDM music. I wanted to celebrate my favourite festival by showing you guys all the silly instant photos I’ve collected over the years at Igloogest for Lomography Wednesday. I don’t know if this is a thing outside of Montreal but here we have this amazing company Matonvu which sets up photo booths around the city randomly at certain events so anyone who wants one can have a free instant photo (hence why these are covered in ads) . It’s such a great idea and at Igloofest they go a step further and actually have a real photographer take the photos instead of the photo booth. I always go and get a photo taken even though I hate having my photo taken because I just love collecting them and it is such a great way to capture that night at Igloofest. Two years ago when me and Victor went every Igloofest event so  the people running the photo  booth started to  remembered us which is hilarious to me (the only random people who recognize me is postal employees and Matonvu employees). Anyways, here is my silly collection of Igloofest photos from 2010 to 2014.

Let’s just say I have lots more of these photos but they are too bad to show you. I look so angry in photos unless I try really hard. It is amazing how pissed off I can look even though I am really happy. Let me know in the comments if your town has a company like Matonvu that sets up photo booths!

Starting the New Year…

new year (94)Even though I worked over the holidays I’ve been a bit slow to getting back into the full swing of things so this week I wanted to not worry about today’s post and show you casual photos of how I brought in the new year! It was actually a really amazing moment because it shouldn’t have happened at all. I was scheduled at my call center job until midnight on New Year’s and Victor had planned on coming downtown to meet me at my work. I was going to try and sneak off a few minutes early so I could get a kiss at midnight and bring in the new year with him but thankfully it was quiet enough towards the end that they let people do home early. So instead of that plan I got home just after 11am and we bundled up and walked a few blocks away to the edge of Vieux-Montreal to watch the fireworks with a bottle of poor people champagne. (I love alcoholic sparkling cider and it’s our tradition to have it on any special day)

new year (102)We got there just minutes before midnight and there was a crowd of people around too who had the same idea. Further down by the port there was live bands playing music and it was the official watching spot but our spot was so much better. The countdown started and we got to ring in the New Year together, and wish each other happy anniversary too. It was amazing, although freezing cold. The fireworks didn’t start until a few minutes after midnight and seemed to go on forever so I happy took photos in one hand while drinking in the other.

new year (54)new year (28)Victor was drinking straight from the bottom but I had a wine glass that froze and got ice chunks almost right away all over. We were both freezing by the time the fireworks ended and rushed home to spend the rest of the night being lame. I hadn’t really planned on sharing any photos of that night but some of them turned out really cool. My toast to you for having a great rest of your year!

Mosaicultures Internationales Part 2

Mosaïcultures Internationales (87)

Here is the rest of the photos from the Mosaicultures Internationales event in Montreal. Mosaïcultures Internationales was an event featuring 50 living sculptures throughout the Botanical Garden happening all summer long in Montreal. For the first half click here from earlier today. This will have some second looks and even more living sculptures that weren’t included in the first half. Plus portraits of me, Victor and Zara in front of these giants. I spent the last few days going through all my photos and couldn’t part with any less. lol. Are you excited for the weekend? I am, I just need one big long nap after going through so many photos from the weekend.

Mosaïcultures Internationales Part 1

Mosaïcultures Internationales (12)Mosaïcultures Internationales was an event featuring 50 living sculptures throughout the Botanical Garden happening all summer long in Montreal. Me and Victor were very excited to attend but kept forgetting and putting it off. Last weekend was the final weekend so we made the decision that we simply couldn`t let it pass us by. Zara joined us again on our walk through the event as well. We had fun walking around and seeing the giants, I think everyone agreed the Mother Nature sculpture was really the stand out. My favourite was the giant coming out of the ground and throttling the snake and the tree one. The only downside was it being the last day as there were so many people there is was very hard to really enjoy it but we managed to despite that. Enjoy the first half of Mosaicultures, tomorrow I will have another set of phtoos of these amazing statues!

Self-Portrait Sunday: Me and the Giants

Yesterday I went to the Mosaicultures event in Montreal with Victor and my friend Zara. They have giant living sculptures that are just breathtaking. The place was packed to the brim but I did manage to sneak in a few shots of myself with the statues. They feel right out of a story tale and are so glad I was able to capture myself beside them…now only if they would come to life. Wouldn’t that be amazing? I want a tree giant to be my friend. lol. There will be more photos on Thursday from our walk around the botanical gardens so look out for that. Hope you had an amazing weekend!

Lomography Wednesday

I am so disappointed today with my local print shop. Montreal has the worst print shops for photography – I honestly cannot find one that doesn’t make mistakes. So happy that I am able to develop my own black and white, I really wish I felt confident enough to try color. I think by Christmas I will have to try it at least once to see if I can do it because today I wanted to share with you these great shots from Vancouver with my robot camera that I’ve been obsessed with this summer and I can’t because the print shopped messed up. I usually scan the prints they give me even though they include them scanned on a CD because I scan with a higher resolution but I just got them back last night and didn’t have time. So I whipped out my CD and decided to pick a few and realized they hadn’t scanned any of them properly, I mean hair particles, finger prints, black lines, crooked photos…you name it my scans had it.  And on another roll they didn’t even include the CD and scanned my Holga Tim half frame camera as 62 full framed shots, those I had to return because I wasn’t going to pay $30 for their mistakes. I honestly don’t even feel like using them again and they were the last shop I was willing to give my film too. I remember when I first started looking up about developing your own film and reading a site that said something along the lines of “even if you do an okay job you will put a lot more care and attention into your own negatives that any shop will and that will make your negatives better” It’s very true. So instead of staying up till 3am scanning photos, I’ve decided to wait until next week and instead share some Oktomat shots from the Just for Laughs Festival a few summers ago.

L’International des Feux Loto-Québec (Montreal Fireworks)

montreal fireworks (10), L'International des Feux Loto-Québec I am still going through my photo shoots that I did when I was in Vancouver last week, so this week I wanted to show photos taken of the Montreal fireworks. I am a huge sucker for fireworks and try and watch them whenever I can. I am a bit spoiled because I’ve lived in Vancouver and Montreal for the last 10 years, both of which have festivals for fireworks in the summer months so I can just go watch them weekly. They finished here in Montreal on the weekend and I watched with delight in the rain, I only went 3 times this year due to work schedule and general forgetfulness as well they had 3 shows while I was in Vancouver.  These were shot in July when me and Victor camped out on the bridge and had a piknic before they started. It was just wonderful and really the best view in Montreal for sure. I’ve recently been interested in bokeh type photography so you’ll notice I use this technique on the fireworks.

Summer Days in Montreal

Summer in Montreal is one of the reasons I love living here so much. Me and Victor have been going on our usual walks, and since I’ve been getting weekends away from the call center we’ve been enjoying festivals together. This is a typical weekend day in Montreal during the summer for me and Victor:

The corner of Beaudry and St. Catherine where we live. It’s a small show from the Cirque Festival. We headed straight to our favourite patio resturant on St. Catherine for a fish burgergrumman 78
The Just for Laughes Festival was on it’s first day so most of the stuff was just being setup, however the food truckers were out in full force. Montreal until this summer had a ban on food truck’s so me and Victor were very excited to check them out. summer in montreal (16)Taco Porc Banh Misummer in montreal (18)My favourite truck, we didn’t try anythimg from here but I’ll be tempted next timesummer in montreal (21)I bought pulled porc sandwitch Continue reading %s

Disderi Robot Camera (24) (1024x692). Piknic ElectronikDisderi Piknic Electronik

One of best places to be on the weekend in Montreal is the Piknic Electronik with a beer in hand and listening to amazing djs. This year the dj line-up hasn’t been as steller as in the past but the best weekend to be there is always the Mutek one. I toke my disderi robot camera with me and got some really fun shots of everyone dancing and enjoying the sun and music. San Proper’s live set was really good, and the rest of Mutek Piknic as well. I am in love with my disderi toy camera and will have a lot of photos to share in the next few months from the summer as it’s my go-to camera right now. Hope you enjoyed and if you are in Montreal or ever visit make sure to check out Piknic!

Disderi Robot Camera (3) (1024x693)

I’ve been waiting for the summer to try out one of my newest toy cameras the Disderi Robot camera, and finally a few weeks ago I started taking it around with me and Victor on our weekend adventures and walks around Montreal.  I  just got back the film last week and am so pleased with the results. The photos for today are from June when me and Victor walked around downtown Montreal and went to Mural Festival. The shots are sooo cool, I love the 3 lens effect and how the top shot is full width. It takes really good photos, I’m suprised so many shots turned out well. I am in love, and have already put in another roll and started shooting. For my upcoming trip to Vancouver I am going to bring my robot camera with me and take so many photos with it. If you interested at all in multi-shot cameras, this guy is cute and only $8 with free shipping if you look on Ebay. Hope you enjoy the fun three-lens result.

Montreal Mural Festival

Mural Festival (101)

A few weeks ago in town there was the Montreal Mural Festival all along St. Laurent St. It was really amazing seeing local graffiti artists and a few international artists hitting the streets. Festivals like this are incredible and I’ve never seen a city celebrate graffiti artists in such a way. I lived in this neighborhood last year and am kinda sad walking around the weekend I wont be passing by this great art. There is such talent in Montreal and its easy to see when you are walking around town, there is a so many large scale pieces of work. It must be very rewarding for them to be able to get their work out there. Me and Victor went and looked at all the artists live working on their pieces and I wanted to share the shoots. I will share more shoots of when I go back and take detailed photographs of the work without the fences and the buckets in the shot.

Artists For Animals

I think I’ll have to change what I post on Friday’s soon, as this is never just ‘a’ picture, and with my 365 project underway on Tumblr it seems repetitive. Next week I have a few announcements about some small changes, if I think of an idea I like before maybe a revamp of Friday will be included. :)

This week’s photos are care of Sunday when I went to the Artists for Animals fundraiser that toke place a few blocks away from my old house! They are a group art show that is taking place in May, for more information about the artists and the charity involved check out their website! I am excited to check out the show and pick up some more artwork for my office and help support the shelter.

It’s starting to be a bit like Spring here in Montreal. Spent Sunday walking around with my Polaroid Colorpack in our neighborhood. It was really nice and we went to a mini-fundraiser as well as our old house to visit our roomie (cos I accidental shipped my new yoga mat there, oops). I’m getting more and more use to my land camera, its fun waiting to get home to see the results. Its always a surprise. The blurry photos of Butter are my favourite, she couldn’t stay still for anything. She’s getting really comfortable with the deck and even walked across what I like to call the pirate ship plank. The neighbor’s have an indoor cat and I think there is a little bit of a love connection happen. :) So excited to spend the summer taking photos and going for walks on the weekend. Hope you are having a great week!

Vintage Tuesday

This photo was taken with my Sooter 35mm film camera I got from my grandmother after she died. There is little to no information on this camera but its a basic point and shoot 35mm film camera from Japan.  I toke 1 roll of him and was pretty disappointed so I haven’t used it much. I like this shot of my friends at Piknic Electronik in 2010.

Montreal Zombie Walk 2012

Over the weekend there was an amazing event which I use to frequently go to when I lived in Vancouver, this was the first year I’ve attended in Montreal (they actaully didn’t even have one the first 2 years I lived here so I actually didn’t even know until last month that they had them here too)
These are my favourite shots from Saturday, I did dress up and try to be a zombie for a few blocks but personally found the huge crowds of people just watching and taking photos way too fustrating.
It was completly different from the zombie walks in Vancouver, but perhaps my mood wasn’t in the right spot for zombie-ness.
Unless I did stop and take a few photos before grabbing Bubbletea from my favourite cafe in Chinatown and heading home.
Maybe next year! When I can think of a great costume too, people are so impressive with their talent.

The last photo is actually on the way home, it did start to rain, and suprisingly there was a rainbow after the zombie walk :)
