On the Sunday during Doors Open, I stopped at the Supreme Court. The rain was probably at its strongest when I took this shot.
The building houses not only the Supreme Court, and its judges and their staff, but also the Federal Court of Appeal, where one of the guides was speaking to visitors when I stopped in.
The building, done in the Art Deco style, was opened after the Second World War to house the Supreme Court- the courtroom is up those steps, and the building was quite popular during Doors Open.
For visitors, the building is open for guided tours when the Court is not in session, with tours in English and French each hour. I'd done a tour last year, so this time I was more interested in just getting some shots in. Peeking in the Court itself, I found one of the guides explaining the work of the Court to visitors.
Stepping back out gave me a rainy view of one of the two statues, in this case Justice, which flank the entrance. A view out to the Parliamentary blocks fills out the background.
