National Gallery

National Gallery of Canada
National Gallery – Ottawa 25.2.2020

I’m often stopped by tourists in downtown Ottawa and asked where they should go and what they should see. At some level, perhaps delusional, I feel like the ambassador to Ottawa, my hometown, and I am always honoured to assist and direct to the best of my ability the people who travel here. Typically within seconds I rhyme off a list of places, a list that always starts with The National Gallery of Canada.

All Lives Matter

Wellington 007 - Ottawa 201?
Wellington Street – Ottawa 201?

This is one of my favourite photographs. Unfortunately the original file sits on a damaged hard drive.

When I first heard of the movement “Black Lives Matter” I thought “Ridiculous!” Of course Black lives matter. My issue here is that such words and often the creation of groups or communities in reality, segregate.
