I won’t say much about today’s photograph, except that if you ever see a “ghost bike” like this one, you are not just looking at a piece of art, but at a quiet statements in support of a cyclists’ right to safe travel. The one on Queen Street has now been there almost a year in memory of a cyclist who died after being hit by a car.

After reading about Ottawa’s latest memorial, the Canadian Firefighters Memorial, which was unveiled on the weekend, I decided I would go check it out. While the statue is pretty impressive, I was a little surprised to see how many names were on this etched into the adjacent wall. As with any memorial remembering the names of the fallen, it is definitely something worth checking out.   [google_map address=’68’ coordinates=’45.417266,-75.713215′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Today’s photograph comes to you from the Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Survivors Park at the corner of Industrial Road and Riverside.  While I have known about the park for a while, yesterday was my first time walking through it. To my surprise there is a lot more to this park than the sculptures at the front. There are also two other interested sections that you should check out : a section dedicated to having a positive attitude and another about what cancer is and the road to recovery.
