I have some odds and ends today. This is the worksite for the future main branch of the Ottawa Library, a joint project with Library and Archives Canada, which will also have some space here. Work is coming along. I am periodically documenting the project.

Odds, Ends, And Impossible Negotiations
Late in May I stopped at St. Matthew's in the Glebe. This sign on a bulletin board in the basement made me laugh.
A number of utility boxes in the downtown core are brightly decorated with a fashion theme. These two are close together.
I was considering this for the theme day. This is one of the skylights in the Rideau Centre mall.
A short walk west, one of the iconic spots in the city, over the Rideau Canal with the landmarks to the north.
On the other shore, I descended into Confederation Park and photographed the staircase coming down from the bridge. It has a new design painted onto it this year by artist Natalie Very B., titled Mother Nature.
Back up onto the bridge itself, these caught my eye.
And then I headed for the NAC for the shots I featured yesterday. I took time to photograph the Ottawa Convention Centre, aka the Shaw Centre.
Neighbouring to the north, the government conference centre and the Chateau Laurier.
The day before the first day of summer, I was at Lansdowne Park and took these two shots at dawn. The first was on the east ridge of the stadium.
A few minutes later I took this shot on the west side of the stadium.
