This isn't the shot that I planned for... but I'm not complaining!
Finally... some rain! It's been one of Ottawa's driest springs on record. As of June 10, 2021 is in third place for precipitation year-to-date since records started being kept in 1873.
Gladstone Avenue has to be one of the least attractive major thoroughfares in Centretown Ottawa. It boggles the mind how most of what's there was approved at some point. The City of Ottawa really needs to up its game when it comes to demanding attractive, consistent, cohesive design from its citizens and developers.
I'd be smiling too if I was on the water on a day like today.
Sometimes it's nice to focus on shapes & shadows and leave the colour behind
If I was an ant living near Dow's Lake, I sure would be happier if Ottawa's urban development was a little more cohesive and didn't pander so much to the developers. It's too bad Gréber didn't have Haussmann's or L'Enfant's vision, cojones or clout...
