In regards to the Carling building that I pointed out yesterday, the structure was deemed to have reached the end of its useful life. I don't know if anything will replace it- there are low rise government buildings in the vicinity, but that area is the Experimental Farm, so it's not likely that we'll see an office tower there.
I thought I would highlight three views from around the National Gallery. This sculpture sits between the Gallery and Major's Hill Park. Parliament can be seen in the background. It's called The Three Watchmen, by James Hart, and is part of the Gallery collection.
These two were taken the same day as yesterday's shots, from the same location. The Maman sculpture stands across from Notre Dame, and it was Victoria Day- hence the Union Jack fluttering in the breeze alongside the Maple Leaf. I wanted both the church and the flags- without the obstruction of construction going on this spring and summer on Sussex Drive.
No way to avoid the construction here, just across the street where the Gallery's entrance lies. The Embassy of Kuwait stands there, with Elizabeth Bruyere Hospital beyond it. The embassy has Middle Eastern influences, and yet seems perfectly at home here.
