I wrote a guest post for Molly Jo, which you can check out at this link. Appropriately for October, it's a ghost story about the Chateau Laurier.
I took these on the same day as my previous three posts, on Labour Day, when we had brooding skies all day. I stopped in at Parliament Hill, which has been featuring a Canada 150 sign through much of the summer. This is likely the one that was in Major's Hill Park on Canada Day.
This view from Plaza Bridge looks north towards Gatineau, over the Ottawa Locks of the Rideau Canal where it meets the Ottawa River.
Coming into the Byward Market (where I'll show you tomorrow an event I had not covered at all this summer), I photographed the American embassy against that sky.
To the south of the embassy stands the Connaught Building.
Between the two buildings are the York Steps, which lead up towards Major's Hill Park. A stylized maple leaf has been painted onto the steps.
Leaving the Rideau Centre, I found it damp on the Mackenzie King Bridge, and photographed first to the south, towards Ottawa City Hall, then west to the core, and north over the last stretch of the Rideau Canal with its familiar views of the National Arts Centre and Parliament Hill.
