Today I have some odds and ends shots, taken at various times in recent weeks. I start with this view from early October, very early in the morning. I was out and about down at Lansdowne Park and photographed this view of the full Moon amid a slight cloud deck, taken looking west from the property towards an apartment building across the street.
A few days later I was downtown, and took this view down Elgin Street on a day with stormy skies. St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church is at left in the background.
And on another day in October while photographing fall colours, I stopped to take a shot of the Embassy of Kuwait, near the National Gallery.
Another night, passing through Lansdowne on a foggy night, I took this shot of the Aberdeen Pavilion in the mist.
Another one of those brooding October days, this one a few blocks from my home in Centretown.
When I was photographing my fall shots from the Landscapes Of Canada Gardens at the Museum of Nature, I noticed this little one on a picnic table. I think it's a yellowjacket. It was kind enough to indulge me in a photograph as opposed to stinging me.
At the end of October I was out in Westboro, and photographed these signs in store windows and outside shops.
In the first days of November I passed by a house in Centretown and noticed the statue on the porch. I came up to photograph it and noticed the little companion beside it.
This mix of faces is a sculpture along Elgin Street. The street has undergone a large infrastructure restoration project in the last couple of years, and it's standard after such an occasion for public art to be included. There are some sculptures along the street, including this one.
And to finish things off, this is Birkett Castle, built in 1896 for Thomas Birkett, the mayor of Ottawa, in the Baronial architectural style. It stands a block away from the above sculpture. Today it is home to the Hungarian embassy. If you're curious about the interior, click on the Castle in the tags below; I've been inside during Doors Open.
