City Daily Photo Theme Day: Upside Down


The first of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo, and for July, that theme is Upside Down, which comes to us from Tina, who you can find at East Gwillimbury CameraGirl. Have a look at how others are interpreting the theme here.

I decided to rotate two images for this post. I was down at the Ottawa Convention Centre early in June to donate blood, and saw a Porsche parked inside on display. Given that it's red, it also seems ideal for Canada Day. I even note the presence of a maple leaf in one shot.


Here are the original images. The Chateau Laurier and Conference Centre can be seen outside the windows.


I am off today for Canada Day, so I will see you tomorrow. I am also marking the day over at my writer's blog. To my fellow Canadians, Happy Canada Day!
