I’m not a church going kind of gal, except when it comes to photography or traveling.
Here I am at the Church of Saint-Leon-de-Westmount in Montreal taking a “Mastering the Light” photography workshop. Montreal is a city of many churches. Mark Twain, during a visit to Montreal in 1881 said: “This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn’t throw a brick without breaking a church window.” Yes the church was at some point a pillar of French Canadian identity. Although church attendance has drastically declined over the years (Quebec is pretty much a secular society today), they are still amazing places of our past and history to discover, photograph and admire for their incredible architectural beauty.
