Shadow And Light

One evening I was walking through Confederation Park. A photo op caught my eye. I liked how the Aboriginal Veterans Monument looked at that time of day up against the hotel beyond it, so I took the shots.

The Lord Elgin Hotel is one of the premier establishments in the city, outdone only by the Chateau Laurier. The two hotels are within sight of each other. I like the way it's lit up at night.

The theme for City Daily Photo's January 1st theme day is Photo Of The Year. I will have mine scheduled for midnight eastern time, and will have a link set for you to see other such examples from bloggers from around the world.


  1. Both of these hotels are imposing residents of the city. And great photo-ops.

  2. I always like well lit hotel lobbies--they're so inviting, never more so than after a long day.

  3. Twilight, a beautiful time to photograph.

  4. @Stuart: they certainly are!

    @Mo: I'll have to photograph this place in different seasons. This one was back in the fall.

    @EG: it really is.

    @Revrunner: that's quite true.

    @Sharon: the light is just right that time of day.

  5. I love that time of the evening!

  6. Interesting sculpture! Do you have a daytime picture of it?

  7. You live in a very beautiful city.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. @Barbara: I'll be photographing it again soon.

    @RedPat: it's one of the best times of day to take pics.

    @Mari: it's one of those cases where the sculptor gets it just right.

    @Linda: I see you found the earlier post of it!

    @Cheryl: thank you!

    @Parsnip: apparently so, despite the politicos!
