A few mixed shots today. This first one is taken downtown, and I took it both for the structure over the parking lot and the building behind it. The structure is part of the ongoing work on the LRT project that will dramatically expand the O-Train network. The expansion is due to be open next year, and a tunnel has been carved beneath the core. This framework seems to be for lowering or raising things up out of the tunnel below, and it's taken up a substantial portion of this lot for some years. The building behind it is the C.D. Howe Building, a government complex named for a cabinet minister in Mackenzie King's day. It's been featured regularly in the Doors Open weekend- the rooftop garden is usually only accessible to the government workers in the building, and is pretty much locked up over the winter.
I passed by a house in Centretown one day, and the staircase caught my eye. These heavy burlap rugs are a common sight on outside staircases here over the winter, giving traction as you enter or leave, a handy thing on what might otherwise be a slippery staircase. The stonework of the foundation around the stairs also caught my eye.
This sign was in the Glebe, outside a restaurant.
And this timely message was at a church in the Glebe. I don't think I've ever photographed this church in full from the outside.
This guy was in a store window down the street, a store that sells glasses.
This final sign is further down the street, outside a bike shop. It was switched for the last shot.
