As I'm doing other things today here, I have a photo post at my writer's blog today about a recent open house at the National Arts Centre. Go on over and take a look.
Inspiration Village is the title of an installation that went through the summer here in Ottawa, set in the Byward Market downtown. It was staged as part of the Canada 150 celebrations, consisting of music, buskers, and displays of provinces, territories, and other organizations. On Labour Day, the last day it was active, I came by to photograph. Stilt walkers were in abundance.
One of the stilt walkers went about, proclaiming that she was everyone's favourite season: autumn.
There were a couple of large signs here for posing for photos; this first one is an initiative of one of our banks, and there have been counterparts of it elsewhere across the country this summer.
The second one you've seen glimpses of above, and it was the city spelled out large scale. I have more from this event tomorrow.
