After the ceremony at the War Memorial (and spending a few minutes getting warmed up), I headed west towards the Canadian War Museum as the clouds were breaking up. Along the way I stopped at the National Firefighters Memorial, where the names of over 1300 firefighters fallen in the line of duty are inscribed on the wall, overseen by a very large statue of a firefighter. I featured this year's national service here, here, and here if you happened to miss those posts.
I wanted a side view of the wall, to show the vegetation that grows on the north side of it. For good measure, the Library and Archives Canada headquarters and portions of the Parliament Buildings made it into this shot.
Across the street from the Memorial is another one that is under construction, standing between here and the museum, which you can see in the background. This is the National Holocaust Monument, presently a work in progress, a stylized but formidable memorial from the looks of the conceptual drawing. I'll be back here periodically to document the process of its construction.
