Habitat 67

Habitat 67 is a housing complex that was built as part of Expo 67, the world's exhibition, that was held here in Montreal. It was designated to accommodate the visiting dignitaries. It is Montreal's "prefabricated city" that was created by Moshe Safdie. It is sited on a peninsula that juts out into the St.Lawrence River and is rewarded with one of the best views of the Old Port of Montreal. I took this photo this afternoon while taking a stroll in the "Old Port". Taking photos under heavy cloud cover and light showers and a brisk breeze blowing are not ideal conditions for a point-and-shoot photographer like myself. So, I did the best I could.
