I spent some time downtown this week. The great weather made for some enjoyable photowalks. Here’s some of my favourite shots of the week.

Summer Colours in Ottawa

For the past few days, we’ve been enjoying that first burst of summer in Ottawa. I’ve been walking around the downtown core after work, camera in hand, enjoying the warm temperatures and sunshine. The clear and sunny weather has given the cityscape a unique look, providing some vibrant colours.
