BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

DOWNTOWN SUNDAY (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

17 Comments

Taking a walk downtown on a rare sunny afternoon in May, I hoped to see some things of interest to photograph. I had borrowed a wide angle lens (12-24mm) and was trying to get a feel for it. The sharp lines and colour attracted me in both of these photographs.
Canada will be celebrating its 150th Birthday on July 1. There is a multi-year plan to renovate many Federal buildings in Ottawa. You can just see some scaffolding in the reflection of the Parliament Buildings in the first photo. The fencing covered in colourful posters dressed up another construction site and made for an interesting composition.

  5. What a picture! The reflections are wonderful. The second picture surprised me. I didn’t realize that was a fence with the posters on it.
