FRANÇAIS: Zalins est formé d'Alain G et d'Alain D. L'idée de contribuer à Panoramio nous est venue des voyages communs que nous avons faits, et du désir d'honorer la ville que nous habitons tous les deux, soit Montréal. Toutes les photographies affichées dans Panoramio ont été sélectionnées dans ce seul but. Par conséquent, les photos abstraites, les photos de famille, les études de sujet, etc, n'apparaissent pas ici. Aussi, l'évolution de la technique photographique de chacun deviendra apparente (enfin j'espère) avec le temps. Autre fait à noter, la grande gueule qui parle toujours, c'est moi : Alain D. :D Vous pourrez bientôt trouver Alain D sous le pseudonyme Arr Day à ... ----- ENGLISH: Zalins is made of Alain G and Alain D. From shared travels, and with the desire to illustrate the city we both live in (Montreal) came the idea of our contribution to Panoramio. Therefore all the pictures you will see here were selected with this goal in mind, and all family, abstractions or subject studies pictures have been avoided. Also, and hopefully, the evolution of our respective techniques will show over time. Another thing worth of mention, the big mouth here is me : Alain D. :D Soon you will also find Alain D under the pseudonym Arr Day at ...

zalins's conversations

James Cook : a great explorer and cartographer with an important input with the development of Canada. But not so much appreciated by the French Canadians as he took part in the takeover of Quebec City. But since this is history, no hatred needed anymore.

Have a nice trip to London, Lucia! Fill your heart with souvenirs!

Alain D.

This little shop takes advantage of every square inch of space allotted to it! And even on a cloudy day, it manages to be colorful!


Thanks to you too. This is what I always try to deliver on a picture : the mood of the places I see (as I see it of course). It is too bad that the tags are not available for the time being, which greatly simplify the browsing.

I think that the muppet show was called Stingray. And I'm sure that Marina City was a key site for the creation of the city for the show. It's the first picture I see of those landmark towers at dock level, though, which makes it twice as fascinating.

Alain D.

how lovely, thank you - I will look for those books in translation - or maybe I will start to study French again, it has been many years :)

"Shall I assume that you are one of Panoramio's millionaires"

Not yet, not yet!

Alain D.

Tout à fait cela! Merci lolo31300! Merci Google Maps : c'est si facile maintenant!

Toulouse reste un excellent souvenir (soupir).

Alain D.

Many many thanks, Lucia. I've bookmarked that great site on Landmark Preservation. I'm still confounded by the minute details of all those styles, but I'll get to recognise them.

Alain D.


Your memory appears to be quite good. Several lots past Avenue B and 6th Street, there is a single lot wide garden called the Creative Little Garden. I posted a number of photos of it on this page.

However, I did not include this photo, since I had already added several from that garden. I do believe it is a willow, losing its leaves at the end of November!


PS Thank you for find the error I made on this photo; I must have been intoxicated :O when I uploaded it!!

Goddam good catch! Well framed too. Congrats! Love that end-of-the-day feeling! Alain D.
