Photographer's Note

Île Notre-Dame

The 1967 International and Universal Exposition was considered to be the most successful World's Fair of the 20th century, with over 50 million visitors and 62 nations participating.

Today, three prominent buildings remaining in use on the Expo grounds are the Buckminster Fuller Dome, the one you see on this photo, now operating as an environmental sciences museum called Biosphère. Also, the French and Quebec pavilions now form the Montreal Casino, which I will show you tomorrow.

This photo has been shot at the morning "blue hour", a faster changing light than during night. At most, you have 20 minutes between pitch dark and sun coming out, during summer time.
