Photographs are Memory Vessels

One of the aspects of photography that I really love is the way it can take you back to a moment in time. You, as author of the image, can be instantly transported. I like that feeling.
I am going to Montreal this weekend with some friends which got me thinking about the last time I was there, in 2001. It was late summer, pre-9/11. I was still using film back then, and Tom had just given me a new lens for my birthday. So, I had a blast exploring the city with him and my camera. We were staying in the charming old part of the city. I love these images from that trip not only because I think they stand up on their own, regardless of location, but because they take me back to that time and the sense of adventure I enjoyed.
