When we started planning a weekend get away to Montreal, I was immediately drawn to the notion that I was going to a city with a strong Catholic heritage. I should know – my family’s past runes deep into the heart of Quebec and I can’t quite shake the sensation that I am going home. At the top of my to-visit list was the Catholic Cemetery on Mont-Royal as its renowned for its iconography which is my most favorite subject to photograph.
The day didn’t exactly go as planned, there were some communication issues between myself (the trip planner) and my husband (the navigator) as to which of Mont-Royal’s cemeteries I wanted to photograph and we ended up having to walk all the way through the Protestant Mont-Royal Cemetery to get to Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. At that point we were hungry, but I powered through it and took as many shots as possible as we made our way down the hill and out of the cemetery proper.
