Made another trip out to Experimental Farm yesterday to show the girlfriends mother the Ornamental Gardens in full bloom. Having been a number of times already to grab some photos of the beautiful flowers, I decided to escape for a few minutes down the road to see if I could find another unique shot at the site. After seeing this shot, I feel I accomplished that mission! Do you guys know of anything else on site that could make for an interesting shot that I should check out?

Sometimes I get asked: “where do I keep finding new ideas for photos after so many days? Doesn’t it become difficult to find a new interesting location around town? The answer to that question is YES. It is becoming more and more difficult to find new locations without wandering far off into the suburbs, but thankfully over the past year I have discovered some amazing sources of local knowledge about Ottawa’s history and buildings. For example, today’s photo idea comes via a series of tweets by local artist Andrew King (Site/Twitter) regarding his own discovery of an old Ottawa landmark. […]

Not going to spoil this photo with too many words! Just enough to say that I wish there were more of these flowers around the city. I have never really been a big flower fan, but I do like the smell of these ones. Happy Friday everyone. From up close!       [google_map address=’313′ coordinates=’45.388697,-75.7077′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]
