Quebec City

Just back from a medical conference in Quebec City. Wonderful place. Spent two hours walking in the rain and mist and dark after arriving, shooting hand held with the Olympus EM-1 Mark II.

Most of the images were made at 1/4 second and the results are very pleasing. I did stop in at a cafe and begged  napkin to dry my lens but quite like the water droplets showing in the second image, of the Chateau Frontenac Hotel.

Last time I saw this hotel I was sailing by, on the Empress of Britain as I immigrated with my family to Canada from Scotland at age 8, 1958.

I was using the Olympus 12-100, a lens that combines it's own image stabilization with that of the camera body to make efforts like this possible.
