I started yesterday's shots with a view taken on Monday afternoon a week ago at the War Memorial. I took my company over into Major's Hill Park, where there are several tulip beds. Some of that lines up behind the statue of Colonel John By, such as the case here.
The Chateau Laurier lingers in the background here.
Moving on, the path takes us to other tulip beds at the north end of the park, with the National Gallery of Canada and Notre Dame Basilica as backdrops.
A shift in perspective looks west. The blocks of Parliament can be glimpsed at the top of the rise in these shots.
This view from the other bed here features the American embassy in the background.
One more shot from here. I'll have another look in this park before I'm done with the Tulip Festival series, as I returned again this past weekend.
We headed back, stopping by this art installation. I have never photographed it before (at least up close), but have passed by it many times. Twist 1.5 is a large wooden spiral created in 1978 by Alex Wyse and Ken Guild, recreating the spiral motif that one often finds in nature. It is built out of British Columbia fir.
