A mixture of Christmas related shots today. Here at Sparks Street the pedestrian mall is well decorated for the holidays. These first two shots were taken on Christmas Eve afternoon.
I liked the reflection coming off the windows at Darcy McGee's, the pub named after the Father of Confederation and Member of Parliament who lived on this street in the 1860s, and who was assassinated arriving home after a session of Parliament.
A poinsetta tree was arranged in the lobby of an office building in Little Italy.
This nativity scene was in the sanctuary at Sunnyside Wesleyan Church.
While this one is in Notre Dame Basilica, as is the wreath in the following shot.
Another one of these sets of snowflake balls lit up in the Glebe.
And I finish up in the corridors at the Chateau Laurier.
I love roaring bear and the street at duskReplyDelete

Nice pictures William, I particularly like the reflection shot and the Chateau looks pretty swanky....ReplyDelete
Great pictures, but loved the last with trees decorated in blue.ReplyDelete
So pretty! I especially love your banner, though, of the frozen canal.ReplyDelete
I had to do a second take on the bear. At first glance I thought it was downing a beer! Nice selection of Christmas shots. The Chateau looks suitably posh to me.ReplyDelete
