STOPS ALONG THE WAY

NOVEMBER SCENE

I  liked the partial shadow of the branches against the white wall.  Quite stark and what a typical November looks and feels like.  This year is not the usual though it’s been warm and sunny and some flowers are still in bloom.

TIME PASSAGES

This building is a landmark on a gritty downtown street corner, sandwiched between an alley and apartment building. It’s been a Bible depot, reading room and gathering place.  When trying to find out more about it, I learned that it had closed permanently. Perhaps another victim of the times.

CITY ART

This wonderful mural by Ottawa artist Christopher Griffin, appears on the wall of a downtown building. It’s on a busy street, so I wonder how many people have seen it as they drive by. When I’m on foot I always stop to look at it and today I had my camera.

FLAMINGO FANFARE

Frequent viewers have likely noticed that I haven’t been featuring many birds lately. Sticking closer to home, sightings have been fewer – but then I stumbled upon this small pink flamingo. Not as rare as you might think in our urban environment 😏

THIS OLD HOUSE

This house is in a neighbourhood that is undergoing change. Many old homes sit side by side with new construction; some are being remodelled or torn down. For now, this old house still stands. Its beautiful wooden door contrasting nicely with the red brick.

SHADOWS AND REFLECTIONS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

I took both photos in downtown Ottawa. New construction abutting the old. This high-rise will be another added to the collection of unremarkable structures that take the place of buildings such as this lovely Art Deco style building.

TAKING IN THE SIGHTS – 2

I took several photos of this Great Dane and featured another one in January. I think the dog was becoming a bit inpatient as it shifted position and was staring directly into the store window, willing its owner to return.

MONDAY WALK (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Under the current Covid stay at home orders staying close to home is what we’re doing. I’ve always enjoyed walking in our neighbourhood and this spring it’s like seeing everything for the first time.

THE ELPHIN (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

The Elphin is an iconic 1960s apartment building in Ottawa. The building had all the amenities of the day, including a darkroom for camera enthusiasts. The Elphin with its namesake elf and look retains a charm lost by the modern glass towers nearby.

SO FAR AWAY (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Bird on wall

I used to walk past this yard quite frequently. Although not exactly in my neighbourhood, certainly close enough in normal times.  I like the wall art on the old brick wall that borders the garden. A bit of the old and new.  I hope to return sometime this summer.
