The camera is my tool. Through it I give reason to everything around me.

NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL, OTTAWA
I had never visited the Notre Dame cathedral in Ottawa but on our last trip I noticed that the doors were wide open so I walked in and have to say I was simply overwhelmed by the gaudy neogothic interior of this nineteen century church. I am quite familiar with the gothic churches in France and Northern Europe, where the austere interiors are spiritual spaces something lacking in this church. However I did enjoy the exuberant colours and textures.
