The Base Of The Peace Tower
These shots from the late summer are from around Centre Block's Peace Tower. I considered using this large arched space for the Shelter theme at the beginning of October. I have more from Parliament Hill in the next two days.
wow, beautiful archways and details.ReplyDelete
I love especially your first photo, William, the light, the colour of the brick changing with the light!ReplyDelete
They are really beautiful pictures.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. I love this part of Ottawa.ReplyDelete
Magnificent archways. Love that style of architecture.ReplyDelete
Those arches are beautiful, I always like to walk there under .ReplyDelete
What a beautiful building. The arches are stunning!ReplyDelete
This is a magnificent structure! And so fitting for a capitol city! Arches are special and we don't see many down here these days!ReplyDelete
this is a very impressive space.ReplyDelete
love all the arches, very cool ( ;ReplyDelete
@Tex: it's an impressive structure.ReplyDelete
@Linda: thank you!
@Halcyon: so do I.
@Lauren: I do too.
@Marianne: it seems so weightless.
@Tamago: I never get tired of photographing here.
@Lowell: we've got a good deal of Gothic architecture here!
@Sharon: I think so too.
Very nicely lined up the arches to frame Hill scenes.ReplyDelete
Hi William, thank you so much for your comments on my blog, and in reference to the photo captcha thing, the blog that I visited yesterday that was in another language did not have the photo at the top, only the description of what they wanted you to click on in the way of images. I see that the English one does have this so it makes it easier for people to understand the picture, but the blog I visited yesterday showed no image at all at the top, gave only a word description so I just didn't bother commenting because I didn't feel like having to translate it. It isn't like you can translate a page because it is a pop up window and most translators only handle text on the actual blog itself. This is why I put text above my quotations, because although the translators can translator the text on my blog they don't recognize images with text as text. Sigh. LOL! :) Thanks again, and thankfully thus far today I have not had the robot captcha thing or any pictures on any blogs I have visited, so this is a relief. :)ReplyDelete
An impressive architectural work!ReplyDelete
A fine place it seems, greetings.ReplyDelete
Oh goodness, I feel like I've just time travelled to the Middle Ages!ReplyDelete
Lovely arch shots, William. And I like all the carvings.ReplyDelete
What wonderful looking arches!ReplyDelete
Beautiful arched vaults and all details look gorgeous.ReplyDelete
@Linda: hopefully this nonsense of photo captchas doesn't last long.
@VP: it certainly is!
@Ciel: I can see that.
@RedPat: I do too... very Canadian when you really study them.
@Revrunner: yes, they did well to build it like this.
@Orvokki: I agree!
@Whisk: quite so.
Lovely pictures William, what a fantastic arch...ReplyDelete
I'm a sucker for arches. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
What a massive structure. Impressive.ReplyDelete
Wow! Beautiful shots! The archways are gorgeous and the mass you've shown especially in the second to last shot makes them even more impressive. The details are wonderful, too.ReplyDelete
Interesting shapes! Love those archways!ReplyDelete
A wonderful spot for taking photographs!ReplyDelete
Very impressive piece of architectureReplyDelete
Love all the arches! Someone with great taste designed this!ReplyDelete
Those arches are such grand affairs. Most impressive art work.ReplyDelete
Beautiful arches and architecture. I haven't been to Ottawa and the Parliament building since 1996 in the days before digital so the only photos I have are landscape type taken with film. Time to go back I think.ReplyDelete
@Eve: these are dramatic.
@Mari: it certainly is.
@Kay: I definitely agree.
@Linda: so do I.
@Marleen: it really is.
@Bill: I agree.ReplyDelete
@Gemma: they are indeed.
@Pamela: you should visit.
