There's an underpass in the heart of the city, close to the Byward Market and the Government Conference Centre, allowing pedestrians to pass beneath a busy street section. There are often large photo banners placed here, and at the moment, they consist of these three First Nations images that I wanted to show you. The man in the third shot stands on Victoria Island, an island in the midst of the Ottawa River which has a First Nations site. I have not photographed from the island in quite a long time, before I even started this blog. I'll have to remedy that.
These feel like justice!ReplyDelete
