Late in January I was heading to the Portage Bridge to photograph the view downstream on the Ottawa River. Before getting there, I paused to look down at Richmond Landing, which is close by, with a view of the frozen river and Parliament and the Supreme Court downstream.
A short walk away I took this shot of the Canadian War Museum.
I've never photographed this before, but have crossed over it many times. This is a channel of the Ottawa River, artificially created at some point in the past. It feeds into a water pumping station a short distance away from here, and then goes out through what feels like a natural channel, rejoining the main body of the river at Richmond Landing.
Parallel to it here is the track for the city LRT line. This is Pimisi Station. One LRT train can be seen pulling out to the west, while the train in the foreground is about to leave, going east. The system's phase one is completed (with a whole lot of kinks and delays along the way), and expansion for phase two is underway.
A short walk from there, I was heading for Little Italy when I noticed these two snowmen in a front yard.
In early February I was walking through Major's Hill Park on a snowy day. I looked back towards the Chateau Laurier.
And then I looked at the National Gallery of Canada.
For today I finish with this view of the Gallery's neighbour, Notre Dame Basilica. You might notice the snow fence at the right side of the picture. It's providing some cover for the tulip beds beneath the snow. Tomorrow is the theme day, and we'll be back to more of this after that.
