This has been a pretty restful staycation for the Anvilclouds. On Thursday, however, we did venture all of the way into Ottawa — a whole 45-minute drive. 🙂 Since the National Gallery close to both the Byward Market and the Parliament buildings, we parked there before ambling about.
There is a grand Catholic church opposite the Gallery; we have poked our noses in any number of times, but I have never had my camera with me. This time, after some hemming and hawing, I decided to port the beast with me on the warm day. I’m glad I did.
I will likely post some more photos of our big day shortly, but here are three of the church. I was concentrating on holding the camera straight, and I did a better job than usual. The first two have been filtered somewhat, but the third has not been post-processed very much.
Mass was about to begin, so I hurriedly snapped three, hand-held photos of the dark interior before beating a hasty retreat. Surprisingly enough, all three turned out; here are two of them.
