The other day I was out shooting photos of statues for this month’s theme, a competition that my brother, who is in Denmark, and I have. I decided the best place is to head out around the parliament buildings in Ottawa.
At the end of shooting as I was walking down one of the paths, I came across some bushes that has delicate clusters of white flowers. While shooting several shots of these I noticed these 3 leaves that were backlit with great dabbled light, dark background and I just enjoyed the texture and patterns created and also that the branch at bottom almost created a mirror image with the other leaves.
These are the white clusters of flowers that at first attracted my attention. One day I will learn the names of all the plants I photograph.
Now as for the statues here are a few of those shots.
A couple sitting on a bench in front of the National Archives Building
A dancing group at the end of Sparks Street.
The statue on top of the War Memorial of Elgin St.
And One of my favorites
4 men on a beam besides the National Arts Centre.
I hope you enjoyed the walk-aboutNiels Henriksen
