Note, I have a reader question at the end of this post that I’d love to have your participation in.
On a recent bike ride through Ottawa, I decided to follow the paths that snake alongside the Rideau River. After about an hour or so, I found myself at the mouth of the Rideau, where it meets the Ottawa River. This scene was taken from a lookout point at Major’s Hill Park, and showcases the less-viewed side of the Parliament Buildings, and the side that is guarded by the banks of the Ottawa River.
Tours of Parliament are free, and since I am in love with architecture, I’ll be sure to visit and document these amazing buildings over the next few months.
Reader Question: To be honest, I really struggled with whether to share this image in black and white or in colour. I am not a fan of sharing different versions of the same image in a post, because I think it is part of the photographer’s job to present what he/she believes is the best representation of his or her image. However, I am equally fond of these two versions, and I wanted to turn the microphone over to you for some feedback. I would really like to hear from you on which version might catch your eye, and why? Or, if you’d prefer to simply use the poll below, that would be fine too 🙂
