Some random shots today. This first one is from Sparks Street, taken at some point in early September, I think. This is one of the entrances to the downtown postal office.
This mural outside of an auto shop caught my eye for the use of colour and the different eras
By contrast we have this. In late October a small building housing restaurants and apartments caught fire on the east edges of Chinatown; the entire thing was a wreck by the time the fire was put out. This is the rubble, a couple of days later.
This is Rideauview Bible Chapel, taken in the evening in September while I was on my way back from the Hog's Back Falls area.
I photographed these two in October. Rabbits can be found in the area around Confederation Park. They'll keep an eye on passing pedestrians. By now they'll be in their burrows for the winter. Wascally wabbits!
This is a fire station built in 1897 in the Lowertown area. Back then it would have featured horse drawn wagons. The place was closed down at some point, and has since been converted into a house, still retaining tell tale signs of the original structure.
This view is of two linked buildings, Arts Court on the left, which I showed you during Nuit Blanche. The old courthouse stands beside the more austere building on its right, which was once a jail and is now a traveler's hostel. The place is said to be haunted. Having had been in there on occasion, I can confirm that it feels like you're being watched.
I finish with this fellow outside a shop on Sparks Street. This Mountie appears to be knackered.
