Je me Souviens : I Remember

Je me Souviens – Ellie Kennard 2014

Québec city at night is an impression of lights on colours on textures on curves and deepening shadows. These lend a rich warmth and mystery to the bitter winter cold of the deserted night streets. Deserted, that is, except for another photographer, lit by the street lamp, equally captivated by the mystery of the shadowy gardens to the side of this street. Je me souviens – I remember – the nights of this beautiful city, Québec.

  1. +Ellie Kennard, belated response. Actually I like only rare bits of science fiction by the very best, e.g., Kim Stanley Robinson, and I have yet to find the fantasy book that I've enjoyed. So I don't even bother, because there's something weird to me about the genre. But thanks for the recommendation.

  2. “…an impression of lights on colours on textures on curves and deepening shadows.” What an exquisite phrase, Ellie. As captivating as the image.

    1. That was such a lovely comment as always, Sandra. Thank you so much for the compliment. I’m glad you liked both the words and the picture!

  3. I forgot to mention you in that comment above, +Lynn David Newton​ and I wanted you to read the bit about Prue's book as I think you would enjoy it if you like fantasy or sci-fi (not sure which it is). I got it on Amazon, but it's linked there from her page (in case).

  4. Thanks, +Darla Hueske​​, it's a wonderful city, though we were only there a couple of nights. Well worth a visit.
    +phaga tasoon​​ thanks so much!
    It really had a special feel about it, +Donna McClure​​
    My goodness me, high praise indeed, for which I thank you +Prue Stopford​​. (For any who don't know Prue, she is a published author whose book 'Losing Time' I really enjoyed reading.
    You really do, +Susanne Stelle​​ although it's a good 10 hours from where we live!

    If I'd known, Lynn, I'd have looked him out. It's a city full of history which has not destroyed its beautiful buildings, unlike so many. +Lynn David Newton
