A funny thing happened on the way to the optometrist’s office today. Actually, a funny thing happened after we got to the optometrist’s office. We found out that my busy life lately is obviously getting to me because my son’s appointment was booked for tomorrow, not today. Well, that was a wasted trip LOL! Of course, with Christmas quickly creeping up on us, life is only going to get busier isn’t it? That’s ok, I think I’ve got a pretty good handle on things (well, except for the optometrist’s appointment that is :)). My Christmas cards are done and in the mail, I have stocked up on wrapping paper, and I got a good chunk of my shopping done this past weekend. Now, if only I could get my hubby to come up with some ideas for him for Christmas, I could really breathe a sigh of relief.
Anyway, now that I have a moment to breathe it’s about time that I get back to blogging. Whenever I visit a big city, even though I have no knowledge of architecture, I am always fascinated by modern high rise buildings. My camera is continuously pointed upwards to capture the majesty of these architectural feats. When we visited Ottawa, our country’s capital, at the beginning of the month, I was entranced by the mixture of old and new in the downtown core, from the stone Parliament Buildings built in the 19th century to the top to bottom glass buildings just down the road. This shot in particular draws me in and entertains my eyes and my mind with all of its angles and lines. Honestly, I prefer the old style architecture for so many reasons, but when it comes to photography I love capturing both the old and the new.
