walking along the Cranberry Trail in Callander, I saw the leaves floating on this little pond. It reminded me of confetti left after the Summer party.

I don't have to go very far to look for rich fall colours. This picture I took in our backyard which shows a rich palette of autumn hues. In another few days the visual feast will be at its peak before all the trees are barren ready for Winter.

Again the Fall season is brightening our landscapes with magnificent colours. Of course it is difficult to make images which reflect a unique approach to these very colourful landscapes. But every year I take new pictures of the trees. This picture is made early this morning and I like to dedicate this picture to all of you who have taken the time to comment on my images. So thanks for your encouragement.

On Slater street in Ottawa is an interesting basketball court. The whole area is covered in grafiti. Most of the grafiti is pretty boring but this one had some interesting murals. So I spend some time photographing the area.

Thanks Polly for your posting. Yes I feel the same when I see some of what passes for art. After I saw two excellent photo exhibits at the national gallery I ended up in a show of art work selected by the Royal Bank. I was very disappointed by the shallowness of the art and I wont comment on the poor technical quality. When I turned to leave the exhibition space I noticed across from me a space which obviously was being renovated. I took this picture because I felt that the subject of the plastic covered opening was far more interesting than the art work I just looked at.

wandering through one of Ottawa's neighbourhoods, I photographed this curious looking building. I think it probably was a small store but I liked its shape and colour.

On March road in kanata you will see this very dilapidated old inn named the Klondike Inn. It is always sad to see historical buildings like this on the verge of being demolished. I always wonder about the history and memories which will be lost forever.In its place we will soon see another nondescript gas station or strip mall. Pity.

I photographed this sculpture downtown Ottawa. I liked the contrast in colour and simply enjoyed the sculpture.

The last few weeks I have not posted may pictures. The reason for this neglect is that I have been away to Ottawa and Toronto and did not get a chance to place any pictures on my blog. I took some pictures during my stay in Ottawa and here is one of them. Close to the Parkdale market I saw this van parked in front of a, well lets say very colourful decorated house. The van was the most impressive of the whole scene. just judge for yourself. Of course I had to do a series of pictures, even though I could not photograph the front because it was parked right up to the house.

I always enjoy the big statues outside of giftshops. This bear, outside of a store in Merrickville, is very nice and, of course, I could not resist taking his picture.

This picture is for all of you who posted to my blog recently, Carol, Dominique, André and Rob. I have been away all last week. First in Ottawa and then to Toronto. I took this picture last weekend on a visit to the historic site of Pinhey's Point in Ottawa.

I just returned from a family visit in Ottawa. I took some time taking pictures in a new subdivision in Kanata, a community on the west side of Ottawa. Lately I have been attracted to making landscapes in urban areas so exploring this new development gave me the chance to see how we are changing our environment and I must confess that I don't enjoy the changes we are making.
