Concluding this series today, I photographed some of the carvings around the main entrance into Centre Block, at the base of the Peace Tower. They include symbols related to Canada, as well as our British and French roots.
The French roots, for instance, can be seen in this unicorn bearing a shield with the fleur-de-lis.
Its neighbour across the way is a British lion.
And then I looked up.
And up some more- oddly I have never photographed this angle.
I started this series with a view of Centre Block. It was actually the final shot I took during this visit, as it was taken later than my time on the observation deck. My second to last shot was this one, framing the Peace Tower from closer to the building.
