Yet another post on travelling…
D and I went to Ottawa for the Thanksgiving weekend. The weather was exquisite and even the drive to our destination was fun…
I guess this fall is actually an Indian summer, it was unbelievably warm for October and the trees were displaying these utmost delicious colors.
I gotta tell ya’ this is probably the first time I’m actually enjoying autumn. Maybe it’s because Montreal itself is not too bad-looking either this time of year.
Anyway, the only reason I’m writing this is to actually brag about some of the pics we took while in Ottawa.
Colorful newspaper distributors – I just couldn’t get enough of these. They’re these amazing splashes of color across the city. I didn’t see so many of them in Mtl, sadly.
Terry Fox’s statue – it’s the first time I saw this statue. Terry is considered a Canadian hero of the 20th century after he ran the Marathon of Hope in the 1980s with a prosthetic leg in order to raise money for cancer research.
View of the Rideau canal and magical blue skies
My personal favorite – light falling on dead leaves on a back alley near Rideau Hall, the governor’s residence. The light was falling directly on the lens, that’s why the picture is so dark, but nevertheless a spectacular effect, I find.

Belvedere of the Houses of Parliament in infrared (50mm lens, that’s why it’s more zoomed in)
