This is Part 2 of “Winter Project Show & Tell.” After creating a Blurb album of my United Kingdom trip in the Spring of 2011, next on the list was 3 weeks in Quebec in Fall 2011. I designed a 12×12″ book to show off all of my Montreal and Quebec City images. Because I was alone for the most part, there are no photos of myself… or people. Ha! It’s simply a travel photography album and I’m so proud of how it turned out.

today is the coldest day in quebec yet. thankfully, it is my very last. i woke up & my weather app declared it was -8*C but it felt like -15*C. yeah, well, newsflash at that temperature you can’t feel anything — so who decides these things? after scraping ice off my windshield and yanking on my frozen door until it opened, i was ready to start the drive to montreal from quebec city.

i am bad at waiting for things: this character weakness of mine is well known.
a beautiful eighteen-days in quebec thus far, but if i could transport home tonight, i think i would. the longer i am away, the farther away the faces i love seem to be. however, i know that in all things, God has perfect timing. impeccable really. He has my days written & the very best plans for me. as silly as it may sound, i believe it applies to “just two more days.” i am constantly reminded to not run ahead of His plans — why wish for home when God has me here? what can i do in this moment, where i am right now with what i have right now? they are good questions. i want to ask them more — about any today i am given.

the day before my scheduled montreal portrait session with melissa johnston i got an email: awful bout of food poisoning. hives all over. you don’t want to photograph me. i promise. what other days are you free? unfortunately i couldn’t fit in another session before i left montreal but melissa heard quebec city and boom, she was on it. yesterday morning she drove five hours from ottawa to quebec city to have me photograph her. three hours farther than montreal would have been for her. ;) so blessed by my clients — love that they love road trips and love me enough to take ’em.
