A reminder to members of City Daily Photo- the theme for June 1st is Pink. Obviously here tulips will factor into my mix, as my series will be continuing into June. And to those readers in the Ottawa area, Doors Open Ottawa happens on June 1st and 2nd. I'll take in those events that I can.
Carrying on with this journey through Commissioners Park, I have more of the tulips.
And today I have the last of the panels. While Yousuf Karsh was renowned as a portrait photographer in Ottawa, his brother Malak became renowned as a landscape photographer. And he's deemed the father of the Tulip Festival, proposing the concept to the Ottawa Board of Trade in 1951. The festival has gone on ever since.
