Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

*If you saw another post (for those who have it to their emails) earlier today, I apologize because I was testing out the post by email and there were some technical difficulties 🙂 Hopefully this one gets published again and everything will work out alright!*

The first official phoneography challenge kicks off with the awesome theme of my neighborhood. This morning, in the not so little suburbs of Brossard where I live, about 15 mins from Montreal island by car, it was beautiful. I think it was like 5-8 degrees Celsius. Making it a gorgeous day to run some errands and then after that, I came back and went out for an afternoon stroll for this challenge. By the time, my boyfriend gets off work, I’m not sure if the sun would still be there. Here I am dressed up in my lighter coat, my bag and my tablet and we’re out!

Now lets be on our way to check out my little neighborhood!

I took a walk out of my street onto a bigger street where there is a forest that lines the autoroute in the back. There is also a little section for a park where my mom does her morning exercise with her friends, like Tai Chi. That sort of thing. They have been doing it for like 15 years together..some stay and some move away but they always go to hang out, exercise and chat in the morning. Its pretty cool. Right along this forest is the bike path, as you go along it, its been made nicer to have little pretty lamp posts and then an open area for the bike path stretches throughout Brossard. I usually take my bike in the summer to bike out to downtown too. Man, now I missing summer..lets hope it gets here soon. I’m due to start biking in April once my workout buddy starts training for the marathon 🙂

Here is my quick snapshots of my neighborhood. If you would like to join this challenge, head over HERE!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!

  2. You have a forest in your backyard, that’s awesome!!! Do you walk that path often? I was really excited to read that your mom does morning exercise with her friends…always found it funny and awesome that elderly Chinese love to have their grandma-parties at 6am for stuff like that! It’s cool to hear they do that in Montreal too!


    • Different areas have their own. Its their own little activity because a lot of them don’t work so they exercise. Its good for them so I don’t really mind. Nice way to socialize 😉 Although they have pushed back the time now as everyone got older, they only meet up at 9pm now 🙂

    • I’ve lived here pretty much all my life. Its nice and calm. Those trees change colors and it does get quite beautiful 🙂 Plus a few neighbors have the maple trees. Us, we take the lazy way and just have pine trees..although pine needles are hard to clear as well 😉
      Thanks Jack! 🙂

  13. I doubt I will be in Montreal any time soon, so you don’t have to worry about me sneaking up on you down your street. You did a great job showing off your neighborhood though.
