Barely Spring in Quebec City

We have heard of so many good things about Quebec City. If I will be conservative with our schedules, I’d say we’ve been meaning to visit Quebec City at least within this lifetime. Turns out, the only thing that will bring us there will be a short notice visit from a friend. We didn’t get to do that though because of some unforeseen circumstances from our end…but given the hotel reservation cannot be cancelled, we opted to visit in the spring…or at least what we thought would have already been spring.

Quebec City is our 5-hr trip to Europe. It boasts of castle-like infrastructures, narrow cobble paths and alleys are reminiscent of a different era…or century even. Rich heritage and character adorned the whole city. The weekend day trip was definitely worth it. Unfortunately it wasn’t spring enough to see some foliage on the photos…just a bunch of naked twigs and leftover pile of snow waiting for sunshine just like the rest of us. It doesn’t matter though, as it doesn’t change the fact that Quebec City is absolutely gorgeous. It’s definitely worth visiting again.

Autumn Photoscape 2010

Autumn brings bittersweet feelings. It is the most beautiful time of the year, bursting with the most gorgeous colors and the landscape is majestic. However, it also means that in a matter of weeks, nature will be going through a purging and all of these pretty colors will nothing but bare, lifeless looking twigs. Nevertheless, being the guy with the glass-half-full, I bask in the moment and enjoy New England’s prettiest time of the year. Enjoy my take of Autumn 2010.


Boston After the Storm

This series features the Boston skyline after the blizzard on Dec. 26, 2010 shot mostly from the observatory deck of the Prudential Tower.  Albeit looking like a scene from “The Day After Tomorrow” it was memorable trip because it triggered our renewed appreciation for the city.  Aside from being one of  the most dominating sport cities, we love Boston for its charming character, rich historical past and their awesome clam chowdah.   It is considered as one of the oldest cities in the United States and also the unofficial capital of New England.

A Toronto trip is a must every year.   My sister who lives in a suburb nearby  is my closest family we have in bloodline and logistically.  A trip to Toronto is always refreshing aside from the fun get together with family.  Besides, it’s a beautiful, diverse  young city bustling with activity.


City of Burlington

Even as the official state nickname is being the “Green Mountain State” — many have called Vermont God’s Country mainly because of the beautiful untouched scenery on all four seasons.  All that nature is not for everybody, though.  That is also why the city of Burlington proves to be a good alternative.  Burlington’s mix of cosmopolitan flair via the Burlington Church Street Marketplace and a stunning view of Lake Champlain against the Adirondack mountains makes it a popular attraction for tourists.

Here our first offering of photographs of this beautiful town.
