The grounds around City Hall, including the skating rink, have been lit up for Christmas. I decided to take a night time shot of the Ottawa Firefighters memorial, as I've never photographed it in the evening.
City Hall itself was open on the evening I stopped by- there was an event going on in one of the large spaces here, and I wanted to photograph the Christmas decorations. The piano you see is a regular fixture in the lobby, free to be played by anyone who happens to know how to tickle the ivories.
Across the street, Christmas lights were prominent at Confederation Park. This place will be busy in February as a focal point for Winterlude.
So nice to see all the lights!ReplyDelete
