I have switched out the header image for a winter view of Parliament Hill from Nepean Point, taken late last December.
Today I begin a series for Christmas. I do this more for my readers, and far less for myself, as this time of year is a difficult one for me. I'm deep into a black wall of depression that happens this time of year, and will only lift when the holiday is over. Let's just say that Christmas is not the most wonderful time of the year for everyone.
Now that I've gotten that bah humbug proviso out of the way, I'm starting with an item of retail- a pair of Deadpool as Santa sleeping pants.
I actually bought these.
Here we have a store in Hintonburg. From the looks of it, it appears to be a year round operation as opposed to one that's around for a couple of months as we see in malls and other locations.
These are for sale up in the Hudson's Bay store linked to the Rideau Centre. One of my cousins has a thing for nutcrackers.
Just one more of these and the nutcrackers can launch their nefarious scheme of world domination.
Here we have some seasonal decorations in the World Exchange Plaza, an office tower downtown.
Nearby, the building's Christmas tree is set up, with four of the five whales- belugas and narwhals- hanging in this space visible in the shot.
These three shots are taken inside the Rideau Centre.
Here's a display inside the atrium at Ottawa City Hall.
And today I finish off with this view inside the National Arts Centre.
