Gold And Red

This is on a street in Centretown.

A few blocks up is Dundonald Park. I took these two shots of the same street a few hours apart.

This is on the north flank of the park.

And this is another few blocks away.

I passed by this area east of the Rideau Canal one afternoon and the red ivy caught my eye. Arts Court is at left, occupying an old courthouse. The Carleton County Gaol is at centre, a former prison that is a hostel these days. And the white structure at right is the expanded quarters of the Ottawa Art Gallery.

On a different day I passed through Dundonald Park again.

Today I leave off with this Centretown view.


  1. Beautiful colors indeed. We need to enjoy as long as it lasts...

  2. This is a good time to post such photos as good reminders of what just was as the colours fade.

  3. and red, two regal colors for this wonderful time of year!

  4. Ivy is a catastrophe it grows everywhere and once in a wall it's hard to get it out. It's sad that the leaves end all up on the ground and the trees will be naked soon. Don't like fall !

  5. There is nothing quite like fall colours.

  6. Lovely colours, the red vine is beautiful:)

  7. Hello, beautiful trees and colors. I love the golds and reds. Happy weekend to you!

  8. Let's enjoy this season while it lasts...

  9. It all looks great but there's going to be a lot of sweeping up to do in a week or two.

  10. i can never ever say it enough ... i love fall ... thank you for sharing your neck of the woods. very cool. ( :

  11. Gorgeous views! I really love this season.

  12. Very pretty fall colors. Thanks for sharing. :-)

  13. You are much farther along than we are, MUCH farther along.

  14. There seem to be a lot of vibrant yellows here right now.

  15. You make me so glad with your nice tree photos

  16. Awesome colors . But you better tell someone to clean up the leaves. We don't get tht volume of leaves as our trees aren't that big.

  17. I loved that last photo of the leaves on the ground. I wouldn't want to be the one to rake them, but I do love seeing them!

  18. So pretty. I love walking in this kind of weather.

  19. Beautiful colours everywhere. Great captures, William.

  22. Thanks for your leaf-peeping tour.

  23. I've seen so much gold and red this fall that I could not photograph for want of a place or way to park. Thanks for yours.

  24. We'll have to have a mid-winter theme of fall colours, just to remind ourselves!!!

  25. Lovely changing colors .. such a wonderful time of year. How funny to think of the old jail now being a hostel! I imagine those young travelers would get a kick out of staying there!

  26. Beautiful shades of red and gold.
    Autumn delivers such wonderful colour.

    All the best Jan

    @Sallie: that place has its own ghost stories, as you might imagine.

    @Jan: it certainly does.
