Winter Activity

 Starting off with the same morning as I left off yesterday, here is some of the playground equipment in Dundonald Park.


The following morning I was in the park at dawn.


The following day I took a walk, bound for Lowertown. I stopped on the terrace below the Chateau Laurier for this shot of a snowman mounted on top of the terrace wall. Parliament Hill was in the background.


In Major's Hill Park, multiple snowmen had been put up. This one has the Connaught Building in the background.


Someone got creative with some snow on the trunk of this tree and made it look like Tigger was about and had bounced himself into the trunk. Off in the background is the American embassy.


My errands done, I walked back through the courtyards that one finds in the Byward Market and took this shot.


A little while later, passing by the National Arts Centre, I noticed the statue of Canadian jazz great Oscar Peterson. Someone had added a scarf and toque- gestures often done by members of the community with statues here to provide these items to those who might need them. A face mask bearing a logo for the Ottawa Senators team completed the look.


On another day in January I was out in Nepean running an errand. This bush was sticking partially out of the snow and made for a rather abstract shot.
