A reminder to members of City Daily Photo that the theme for April 1st is appropriately April Fool. I've taken my shots for the post, but had to really think outside the box on this one.
On a snowy day in the latter part of February I went over to the Ottawa Art Gallery for a visit after it had reopened following the most recent lockdown. Coming back, I came through Confederation Park, which lies between the Mackenzie King Bridge and City Hall to the south. It is home to several military monuments. Two of them, the newest and the oldest, are here. The Canadian Animals In War Memorial is the newest, a concept first proposed by Lloyd Swick, a veteran of the Second World War and Korean War, and designed by artist David Clendining. It includes plaques, the footprints of dogs and horses in the cement, and a statue of a working dog. It stands beside a cenotaph honouring the local dead of the South African War.
