Carrying on where I left off with this exhibit on the Second World War, here we have a look at George Boyer, who served in the Canadian Navy through much of the war.

I paid a visit to the Canadian War Museum a few days ago, primarily to take in the special exhibit that's on at the moment, running into September. The Museum came to its present headquarters in 2005, and the building feels like a ship, a bomber, or a bunker, depending on which view you have of it. It is ideal for its subject matter, which is the story of Canada at war, both at home and abroad. I came on the day after I'd been vaccinated, and actually was feeling rather trashed, so I kept this visit short.

The first day of each day is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo, and for August that theme is Sticky. See how others are interpreting this theme right here.
For me, the first thing that came to mind was the sort of weather conditions I dislike being out in, let alone photographing in: hot, humid weather. Such was the case one day early in July when I was out on Plaza Bridge over the Rideau Canal and photographed this view looking out over the Ottawa Locks, where the Rideau Canal descends towards the Ottawa River. Gatineau is on the far shore of the river, and off in the distance, the familiar rise of the Gatineau Hills was an indistinct blue.

A few days ago I decided to photograph the Supreme Court of Canada. This Art Deco masterpiece is the current headquarters of the Court, designed by Ernest Cormier, and neighbours Parliament Hill. Construction of the building began in 1939, with first cases heard in 1946.

Continuing on today, here we have views from the main viewing area of the Chaudiere Falls. And here is one of the videos I took during this visit.
