One day in the middle of July I was passing by the National Gallery and photographed up into the glass tower. Banners hanging from above were in fact an art installation for a temporary exhibit that extended its run because of Covid, what with the Gallery being closed for months. Earlier this month I was able to visit the Gallery for the first time in many months, and I'll show you that starting in early September.
There is a vintage goods store not far from where I live that has a resident cat. I've photographed this one on three occasions in the last few weeks, dozing on the windowsill.
Just slightly shifting position when I paid a visit a few days later.
And a few days after that, he or she was awake and looked at me before something more interesting caught their attention.
Early in August I was down in Little Italy and a dramatic stormy sky drew my attention. It was one of those days when rain would last for five minutes and then move on.
Another brooding day brought me out to the terrace below the Chateau Laurier, where I photographed this view of Parliament Hill, the Bytown Museum, the Rideau Canal, and the Ottawa River, with Gatineau on the far shore.
And on the day I paid a return visit to the National Gallery, I paused in Major's Hill Park to photograph this flower bed. After the tulips are done, seasonal plants are placed in the beds. This is typical of most of the public gardens where tulips are found in May, and they're replanted in October.
