Ottawa is a very walkable city, even in the winter. I decided to take advantage of that with the intention of photographing for black and white.
My route took me past the St. Francois d'Assise Catholic church in Hintonburg. This is a beautiful building with twin spires and a feature of the neighbourhood. From there, East on Albert St then North on Booth St to the National Holocaust Monument. This is a very dramatic structure with angular walls that is wonderful to photograph. Then across the street to the Canadian War Museum, which also has a dramatic shape. While I didn't go inside on this trip, the museum is a fascinating place to visit. From there I headed for home alongside the Sir John A Macdonald Parkway. Along the way, I took several shots of the Chief William Commanda Bridge. The bridge was so named in 2021, in honour of a former chief of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation. By the time I had returned home, I had covered about 9 km.
