Enduring Ottawa

What endures
Of our constructs
And what crumbles away?

Ottawa is a young city by global standards but there is still plenty of history here. I love walking its streets, taking in its older brick and clapboard houses and imagining the lives that have cycled through them, the small changes that have been made, the families who originally built them.

  1. Really beautiful photographs. I like to call buildings like that “lonely” so moving. Do you use photoshop? Id love to see the black and whites with a bit more contrast, since im viewing from my phone! so Beautiful, I cant wait to see more.

    • Thank you, I’m so glad you liked these. I’ve been madly snapping photos all the way to work and back ever since. I only have an iPhone and no photoshop unfortunately but I can try to work iPhoto a bit more to achieve greater contrast. Thanks for the feedback – it’s great to know how they look to others and how I can improve 🙂
