A few days back we had a considerable amount of fog move in as the day went along. In the evening, I was heading home and took this first shot from a local library branch. The source of light you see is the stadium lighting over at Lansdowne. The condo building off to the side was somewhat obscured by fog.
I approached via the Bank Street Bridge and took this shot.
Then I headed up to an overlook area beside the north end stands. The field is used for football and soccer games (a hockey arena is beneath the north end stands), but no one was on it; it's likely that a team had finished up practice. Had there been a game playing in this kind of weather, the fog might have been problematic enough for fans over at the top of the south end stands in seeing the field.
A couple of days I came back to Lansdowne to meet up with some people at the club level in the south end stands, where there is some cafe and restaurant space alongside the suites. I decided to photograph the stadium. A soccer game had been played earlier- this level is generally only open on game days- and the Redblacks football team was, at that time of day, out in Edmonton playing a game. The game was being played on screens inside the club level, as well as the big screen in the stadium.
The Aberdeen Pavilion lingers in the background in this shot.
This Canadian flag in bas relief panels hangs on one of the walls inside.
Departing, I paused to photograph the statue of Frank Clair, the coach whose Ottawa tenure back in the Rough Riders days included five Grey Cup victories and a status as the coach with the third best record overall in the CFL.
