Isolation Revisited

In a recent post I posted a Smartphone/Hipstamatic image of a man sitting on his own in a coffee shop in Ottawa. While there I took a film shot with a wide angle lens for a different view, still emphasizing the isolation.

Dark Times

Today’s post is a set of photographs I took at the National Holocaust Memorial in Ottawa. The Memorial is a stark reminder of the depths mankind can sink to, and for me at least the dark skies point to dangerous times ahead.

A Favourite Spot in Ottawa

Whenever I am shooting in Ottawa, this spot (near the canal) is one I always seem to end up shooting, and my recent trip was no exception.

Tree Mirror #1

This image, taken in Andrew Haydon Park in Ottawa recently was originally shot on colour film, but I prefer it in black and white, and slightly cropped from the original square format.
