Well folks, I’ve been in Ottawa for nearly two weeks. The move was a lot of work, but we are well settled into our new home, however I have been so busy getting us settled that I haven’t had a chance to do any street shooting.
Now that we are comfortably settled and are more used to our new daily routines, I’ll start moving around the city to share what I find. I can’t tell you how excited I am about exploring this new landscape.
As this is my inaugural Ottawa post, I thought I’d share an unusual and fascinating piece of art that is well known around these part. Guarding the plaza of the National Gallery of Canada is a 9.25m tall bronze spider named Maman, designed by renowned artist Louise Bourgeois.
It is an impressive piece of work that towers over you, and if you look between it’s legs on the right, you can see the 302ft Peace Tower peaking above the trees in the distance.
