Ottawa In Summer




The other day I completely filled my SD card so I decided to clean out the photos. I realized that I have so many miscellaneous Ottawa bound photos taken over the last few months I have been neglecting.

I have this syndrome where I am photographically fascinated by everywhere other than where I live. 15 years living in Victoria, BC and not one picture of the inner harbor or the ocean until I permanently moved out east. And now when I visit Victoria I'm clicking my camera away at the lake near my parents' house where I used to have nightmares on being murdered and having the killer tie a rock to my body and drop me into the lake, my neighbor's peacock I never found attractive, and trees that look no different than any other trees: "but they look different than the trees in Ottawa, a-ha!" I'd say to myself.

To break the cycle here is a collage of some photos in Ottawa. Dispite the horrible winter chills, summer here is quite beautiful. Give me a chilled bottle of Vitamin Water and let me aimlessly wonder around Gatineau Park or Petrie Island for a day anytime.

  5. It's always what's foreign that seems the most exciting. I never understood why tourists raved about the ocean and mountains here ("So what? They're just there all the time") until I started traveling to other places.

  8. It is weird how hard it is to appreciate the area surrounding where we hang our hat. Ottawa is really pretty in the summer. You look awesome, but especially so in the leather skirt.

  9. Ottawa looks beautiful! The tacos and oysters look amazing. Wish I could get my hands on a plate of that right now.

    I'm the same way about photos. I never take photo of my hometown and only blog/Instagram about places farther away from home. That's changing now though because I live in New York and everything seems exciting.

  10. What a beautiful collection of pictures. However, I gotta say.. the grass looks always greener on the other side, doesn't it? I used to never apprechiate the place where I grew up until I had to move to a nearby city.

  11. So many gorgeous photos of a city that I love. I miss living in Ottawa but I certainly didn't miss the summer there - it is so so so so hot! Give me the ocean any day!

  12. beautiful photos, I miss summer. I hope Summer will be decent here in australia this year around. It was dreadful last year. I gotta agree with you, I explore every other suburb and attend their events, all except for the town I live in.
