365 Photo Challenge: Day 22

Another photo using the 100 Cameras in 1 iPhone app.

I got this iron candle holder on Ile d’Orleans last summer while my Dad and I were in Quebec City visiting our family. I hadn’t checked out this amazing island, which is just across from Montmorency Falls, before and I am glad I finally did! It is home to many artisans including Guy Bel, creator of La Forge a Pique-Assaut. Some of the pieces in his showroom looked very familiar to me and it turns out that Guy did a great deal of the iron restoration work at the Fortress of Louisbourg where I worked during university! Dad and I also lucked out and got to meet Guy (we were told he spends most of his time playing golf with his self-made titanium clubs) and I was able to tell him how excited I was about this connection (in my broken French). Guy had many beautiful pieces for sale but, in the end, I bought this candle holder because it reminded me of fun summers spent at the Fortress.
