A Few Recent Ottawa Photos


Night Photos near the Wellington Street Bridge (March 30, 2016)

Well, I’m a bit behind on processing these photos! This past March I headed out to the Ottawa downtown area after dark to try my hand at some night photography. I spent some time under the Wellington Street bridge that crosses the canal, and I became fascinated with the lighting and shadows. I also love the power of the message behind the War Memorial.

“The Famous Five” Statue on Parliament Hill – “Women Are Persons” (June 9, 2016)

I am taking a summer course at SPAO on the history of photography, and as part of the course we looked at “iconic” photography. As an assignment, we were asked to select an Ottawa icon. This was a challenge, as there are so many things and places in Ottawa that are iconic to me. I finally decided on “The Famous Five” statue on Parliament Hill. For me, this represents many of my beliefs.
