2005/01/06 - Every year I think about taking pictures of the Christmas
lights in downtown Ottawa, and every year I forget. Except this year.
It was cold and snowing, for extra reflectivity... and frostbite!
Sorry for the blurriness.
|>>> A view of Confederation Park.||>>> A view of the Mackenzie King bridge.|
|<<< Trees along the Rideau Canal.||<<< I should have taken more pictures like this one, but it didn't look as interesting on the LCD. (better one below)|
|>>> Views from Confederation Park.|
|<<< Lord Elgin hotel.||<<< Aboriginal Veterans War Memorial.|
|<<< One of the first thoughts that came to mind was "stationary fireworks".|
|>>> National War Memorial.||>>> Brigadier Andrew Hamilton Gault of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. (see plaque below)|
|>>> Shots from Sparks Street Mall.|
|<<< Sparks Street Mall.|
|>>> The Christmas tree in front of the National Capital Commission.|
|<<< Terry Fox statue.||<<< The Eternal Flame. (a.k.a. Centennial Flame)|
|>>> Parliament Hill, including the Peace Tower.|
|<<< Inuksuk, and plaque with information on Nunavut.|
|>>> The Locks.|
|<<< The Rideau Centre.||<<< They were using the newer LED lights there.|
|>>> For some reason the thought of the question mark in front of the clock face amused me.||>>> Hello little shrub.|
