I have some shots today from the area around the National Arts Centre. A project is just getting underway here to add a glass framework around the building that'll give things a different look when it's done next year. I am cautiously optimistic, and in the meantime, performances and the work of the NAC will continue during the project. Some of the banners hanging on the walls or the nearby billboards are for recent concerts or events happening soon. You can make out Michael Kaeshammer's banner in the first shot. He's a Canadian jazz musician I've seen in concert before. When you listen to him, you swear there's more than one player at the piano. For a taste of his style, check this out (though like me, you might want to strangle the editor who thought constant quick cut edits was a brilliant idea).
