A little over a week ago, I took the family (myself, my much better half, and all four kids) to Montreal for a day trip to La Ronde. This was my first time visiting this park and it was much larger than expected it to be.
I knew that making photos here would be a challenge but that’s what I love to do. This was a family trip. A time to spend time together and enjoy ourselves. This exercise, from a photographic view, was not to make technically great photographs but rather to have fun and actually take snapshots. Family type event photos that we can look back on is what I wanted out of this and I think I got them.
I’ll let you be the judge, though.
Got a nice capture of my eldest and youngest interacting right after we arrived in the park.
I also found this weird mushroom sculpture along one of the walkways.
There were large lines for all of the ‘non-kiddie’ rides. When everyone is waiting in line, all I can do is wait. While waiting for one ride, I saw this bird up in a tree and I just had to try and get this fellow.
Finally, they get on the ride. Looks like they’re having a good time!
We make it to the carousel. The carousel is a mandatory stop when you have little ones. I think it’s even mentioned in the mysterious parenting manual that I never got a copy of.
Waiting for yet another ride, I am distracted by a flower right on the other side of the fence. Actually, I kind of like the framing for this one.
It seems like we spent most of our time waiting. Got a chance for this nice shot.
And we get the sisters. I can tell that they are getting tired.
And, finally, while everyone is at the gift shop I got this structure just because it was there.
We had a great day together as a family and I don’t think we even saw half of the park. We are planning on making another trip out there one day soon.
