The first day of each month is a theme day for photo bloggers from across the world who are part of City Daily Photo. The theme for the first of April is triangles, and you can find more interpretations of the theme right here. I find myself wondering if someone might think outside the box and use a love triangle for their interpretation... though I think Facebook filters might blow a gasket if the photos were of the triangle participants in question engaged in activities not requiring clothing.
Anyway, now that I've put that visual in your head (you're welcome), I decided to return early last week to a site I've shown you before, the Ottawa Convention Centre downtown, since the glass wall is all triangles.
The wall is 30 metres high, 90 metres long, and consists of over a thousand glass triangles, each a different size. So of course it seemed an ideal location to photograph triangles. Even if a disreputable devious rascal turns up in a shot or two. Hey, wait a minute... I'm the disreputable devious rascal!
The wall is curved, so the reflections can be rather different from panel to panel. Below we have the neighbouring Westin Hotel on the left, the Chateau Laurier in the center, and the Government Conference Centre reflected in the glass.
The glass wall carries on past the interior space, ending as a wing of sorts on the north sides. The entire shape of the wall is meant to evoke the shape of a tulip. And even here, the triangular pattern repeats itself.
Inside, from the third floor, this view through the glass gives us the Rideau Canal below the Mackenzie King Bridge. Confederation Park is on the far side of the bridge.
Since I'm finishing off my tour of Parliament Hill tomorrow, it's fitting to finish today with this view of the Parliament buildings and the Canal through the glass. I have more pics from inside and outside the Convention Centre, but we'll leave those for later.
