Restaurant Parmesan Quebec City

Posted in Food, Personal by harkinsphoto on February 17, 2015


On my trip to Quebec City for the Winter Carnival I enjoyed an evening out at the Restaurant Parmesan just a short walk from our hotel room a the Le Chateau Frontenac.

I was greeted by co owner Luigi Leoni into a warm eclectic atmosphere of Italian cuisine and memorabilia that fills every corner of the room.

I enjoyed a Duck L’Orange as we listened to the accordion player playing some favorites for the guest that sang right along with some members of a visiting St. Andrews Society group.

Lots of fun and I highly recommend a visit.

Just in time for Valentines Day. Just don’t forget the chocolates.

I was shooting at Mrs. Nelson’s Candy House in Chelmsford MA for Merrimack Valley Magazine.

The article ” Our Hearts Belong to Chocolate” by writer  Suzanne DeWitt Hall gives you some local shops to check out in the valley.

Owner Arthur Mapes had me leaving with a nice box of my favorites. Hope you got yours.

Hotel de Glace the Quebec City Ice Hotel

Posted in Architecture, Interiors, Personal by harkinsphoto on February 6, 2015


Cold? You don’t know cold until you spend a little time in the Hotel de Glace in Quebec City.

A short bus ride from the Chateau Frontenac we toured the Ice Hotel just as twilight was setting in.

More like an ice bar lounge with rooms, we enjoyed the elaborate ice sculptures and rooms each with their own theme.

There is even a chapel for that special wedding package.

Drinks were served in ice carved blocks for those adventurous enough.

What I was looking for was a nice hot latte but alas not to be had.

You can actually stay overnight in the rooms as check in time is 8PM, but for the life of me I wouldn’t have lasted a hour on those beds.

Maybe it was the -2°F temps that I woke up to that morning.

Le Monde De Bonhomme 2015

Posted in Event, Personal by harkinsphoto on February 5, 2015



Le Carnaval de Quebec kicked off last weekend and I spent Friday night touring the grounds for the opening events.

Snow fell most of the evening but nothing deterred the crowds.

Fireworks, ice castles, sledding, a toboggan run, hot tubs and igloos all part of the display with live entertainment on an outdoor stage.

Cold but well worth it.

Quebec City at Le Chateau Frontenac

Posted in Architecture, Landscape, Personal by harkinsphoto on February 2, 2015


A little vacation time in between snowstorms. We arrived at Le Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City over the weekend for the Carnaval de Quebec.

The drive was long but well worth it once there. We enjoyed a nice rest in newly renovated rooms with some beautiful views.

The staff, services, and accommodations were top shelf and they took great care of us as soon as we walked in the door.

More views of the Winter Festival to come.
