Ottawa -- Canada's Capital

I have been living in this city for two years now and after looking at the forums, I noticed that there is no Urban Showcase thread for Canada's capital city. I thought that it is sort of an injustice that such a great city does not have its own thread. So I obliged myself to start one. Haha!

Here are some pictures I took during my two years in the gorgeous O-town.

Pics from 2010... My first encounter with Ottawa

Yeah, I saw the one in Tokyo too. I didn't know Seoul has it. There is one in Toronto but it's like a modified version and it only has three legs. Hehehe...

Thanks TB! I must say that I was inspired by your photoblogs, especially the latest one on Hamilton that I started my own.

Beautiful, looks a bit Europan! It's strange this city is so rarely talked about outside of Canada despite being the capital!

Thanks! Well, I think Ottawa is eclipsed by the bigger and more popular cities of Canada like Toronto and Montreal in the East and Vancouver and Calgary in the West. And also, even some Canadians still think of Ottawa as a sleepy small town full of politicians. Haha.
