A bit of bright colour to start things off; these are the fall colours of a bush in the Glebe.
Here we have some fall colours at the Supreme Court.
A statue sits here on the lawn, that of Louis St. Laurent, a prime minister from 1948-57, and before that Minister of Justice for Prime Minister Mackenzie King. You can find out more about him here. While the statues of major prime ministers and Fathers of Confederation are over on Parliament Hill, St. Laurent is over here by himself, which might seem odd until you know a bit about him.
He was not a career politician, but a lawyer, a highly respected one, so much so that he had been offered a seat on the Supreme Court before. Mackenzie King named him to his cabinet upon the death of his Minister of Justice in 1941, on the recommendations of his cabinet. St. Laurent's ministry was housed in the Justice building, which his statue now faces across the lawn, and having him sit here before the Court is quite appropriate for such a lawyer who, if politics hadn't drawn him in, would have made an ideal Supreme Court justice.
This view of the War Memorial with fall colours is taken from Parliament Hill.
While I was in the area this particular day, I descended beneath Plaza Bridge and photographed the archway.
I finish with another view of the Canal and Parliament Hill. Compare it to the ones from the other day.
