Photographer's Note

Lors dune promenade dans le Vieux-Qubec sous une faible neige, jai emprunt cette ruelle car la rue tait ferme. Quelle ne fut pas ma surprise de voir cette succession de balcons. a me rappelle un jeu denfance, le jeu Serpents et chelles.
Avec tous ces balcons disposs en gradins, on dirait que la ruelle, en autre temps, laissait place au spectacle.

Jai publi cette photo en noir et blanc pour accentuer le regard sur larchitecture plutt que les couleurs, qui nont gure dimportance dans ce clich.
=============================================
While I was walking under a light snow, I pass through this alley because the main street was closed. I was very surprised to see all those balconies. It reminds me playing Snakes and Ladders when I was a kid.
With all those terraces, its like this alley, in other times, was used for spectacle.

I posted this picture in black & white to make our eyes focus on the architecture rather than colors that were not very important in that composition.
