To more standard Christmas stuff today. I've been busy taking pics here and there (including a tourist's walkabout inside Centre Block) with a holiday theme, so expect Yuletide shots over the coming days.
In the south end of the city, outside a hotel, numerous trees on the property are lit up for the Christmas season.
I took these shots at twilight a few days ago.
Passing through the main downtown branch of my bank, on Sparks Street, I came across this Christmas tree in the heart of the building. This branch is close to the original main branch of the bank, which now serves as an archive for Parliament, a curious mix of old architecture and modern archive technology. Next summer during Doors Open, I'll have to pay a visit inside.
Coming into the Lord Elgin Hotel downtown, this Christmas tree greets the visitor.
Close by is this sitting lounge, with wreaths and decorations for the season. The fireplace is a welcome sight on a cold day.
