I look forward to seeing what search terms that title ends up bringing into my stats.
I've photographed this before, but I've always thought it stands out so well. The seal of the city is rendered in three dimensions and set against the brick wall in the Heritage Building.
Down the hall, heading towards the modern wing of City Hall, are portraits of former mayors, hence our Usual Suspects. Unlike Toronto, fortunately we will never have to put up with a portrait of a drunken crack smoking idiot among such portraits.
On a balcony in the modern wing are these two sculptures by the same artist. They're oddities; I thought of using them for a theme day later in the year. The woman, an acrobat, certainly reminds me of a burlesque girl (don't ask, it's a long story, and the Sisters Of Little Or No Mercy would not approve).
Down below, outside the council chambers (which I really should photograph sometime) are a set of paintings by a local artist, Ben Babelowsky, depicting Ottawa scenes. The one on the first shot, lower row first on the left, shows the modern wing of City Hall. The Heritage Building is in the second shot, top row left. Watson's Mill in Manotick can be found in the second shot, lower row centre.
Tomorrow I am veering off from Doors Open for some Canada Day pics, but I will be back again to finish this series off.
