Over the summer I have placed quite a few of a series called Ottawa Welcomes The World over at my writer blog, since I was so busy here. If you've missed them, here are the links for those events I photographed: Ireland, Rwanda and Taiwan, Egypt, Uruguay, Macedonia, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, and Indonesia. Now it's time to post the rest of it here as they come along through the fall. The series is part of the Canada 150 celebrations, with the city of Ottawa working with embassies to present their countries for a day or more in the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park. Today we're having a look at Pakistan.
A number of photographs were on display as I came in, showing the landscape of the country.
That landscape includes this- K2, the second highest mountain in the world, and the deadliest. The mountain is part of the Karakoram range, and resides partially in Pakistan.
This large banner, which people were standing before for pictures, depicts Kachura Lake.
There were crafts and clothing on display while I was visiting- this set of traditional clothing caught my eye. As did the marble crafts and the rugs.
