This is the U.S. Embassy here in Ottawa, a structure I've come to think of as The Fortress. It overlooks Major's Hill Park on the west side, and looms over the Byward Market to the east. The building takes some getting used to, but I think in time that's happened.
I took these shots from across the street, with the park to my left, and fall colours standing out nicely. I will be featuring a look at the embassy from inside the park in tomorrow's post as well.
Down the street gives us a different point of view and a look at the embassy's neighbour, the Connaught Building.
And this view takes in the embassy from the grounds of the Peacekeeping Monument.
