 More from INFRA at Winterlude.

I carried on and stopped by this interactive tunnel.

And then I went in.

 I returned to Sparks Street some nights after my previous visit, a weeknight when it was quiet. The teeter totters were still here.

I mentioned the central core having a mix of colours of liquids visible inside. Here they are- light and dark.

This art installation once again caught my eye.

The wolves were still in fine shape.

I tried another setting on my phone. The wolves went supernova.

 More today from the ice sculptures. They are most beautiful in the night.

This next set, of course, is for Nunavut.

And this is the spirit horse of the ojibwe.

Two more to round things out for today, just up the street. The Haunted Walk is a tour company that takes guests for a walk around spots in the downtown core that have a reputation for being haunted.

Its neighbour is D'Arcy McGee's, an Irish pub named for the Father of Confederation Thomas D'Arcy McGee, whose Ottawa residence was down the street from here.

 More from where I left off yesterday.

Along the way, something unexpected. Teeter totters are something that one doesn't see often these days. These are a bit more spruced up than the ones we might have grown up with. The centre core that's lit up on each is filled with liquid- or liquids, with the darker portion being the heavier- and shifting back and forth as the teeter totter goes up and down.

Another site along the way.

And here we are- the ice sculptures at night, with shifting lights changing colours.

 I was quite appreciative of these wolves.

Another multimedia work, this being a tunnel you can walk through, with the light interacting with those walking through and following along.

This particular work, which shifted colours repeatedly, had multiple foam balls being blown about within.
