Seasonal outdoor inspirations

My husband and I escaped from the traditional turkey/cranberry/shopping week-end this year and headed way north to Quebec City, Canada to enjoy the old-city and its magical winter traditions.  Living winter outside is big here and Christmas marks the beginning of “plein air” festival season.  We walked for hours each day into the evening in gentle snow showers, stopping for hot chocolate or a cappuccino, while I photographed outdoor decorations in as many parts of the city that my knees and hips would carry me.  I wanted to share them with you to perhaps inspire your own decorations this season.   Enjoy!

  1. Hi jane, Love you photos of Quebec. Now, I want to go!!! Did you drive or fly? If the former, how long is the drive? Where did you stay? And did you love your accomodations? Best, Assiah
