A downtown walk.

It was a nice sunny day today in downtown Ottawa. I try to do a 4-5km walk several days per week. I started my photo exploration on Metcalfe Street.

Metcalfe-Queen
I was prompted to look up with this arrow. I headed over to Nepean Street.

Condos almost ready at Nepean Street and Metcalfe Street. Continuing west up Nepean…

Got to Kent Street, diagonally across from my old parish church are these towers.

New condo The Hudson.

Travelling a couple blocks west I ended up in front of the old family home at Nepean Street and Lyon Street.

The house I grew up in. This was the family home of my Grand parents, later owned by my parents. 335-333 Nepean Street, built in 1867. Still standing but is surrounded now. With condos on Bay St, Lyon St and Gloucester St (behind it)

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
