Have a look at a guest post I wrote for Molly Jo about an ongoing series of events here involving the diplomatic community in Ottawa.
The plaza below the National Gallery of Canada was busy through the Canada Day weekend. I decided to skip heading in this time, but passed by heading out onto the Alexandra Bridge a couple of times over the weekend. In the first case, aerial lessons were being done on the apparatus.
The following day, a group of swing dancers were giving a performance for onlookers. I caught members of the troupe on another day in another location that I'll be using for the next theme day.
Heading past the Gallery on Canada Day, I paused to photograph the glass tower, then headed for the Alexandra Bridge, where views of Parliament Hill, the Ottawa River, and the Museum of History on the Gatineau side of the river were plentiful.
Today I'll leave off with this shot, taken after I'd left the Museum later in the day. This large coloured glass installation is titled Papa, and stands at an intersection close to the Museum here in Gatineau. I'll have material from the Museum later on. Tomorrow we have fireworks.
