This thread is one of a kind. You're making the box store look good...those shopping cart photos are pretty nice too.

I dig what you have done here, you are a brave man.

As for the subject matter itself, this is what it feels like but with more jutting, crashing. Same amount of crying.

The gas price is $4.89 per gallon for our American friends Ottawa thankfully has made it mandatory for any new shopping centres over 50,000 sq m (537k sq ft) to be connected to the Transitway and the station is required to be incorporated into the design of the site, so you can get 2-4 minute bus frequency here during rush hour, 15 minutes off peak.

Nice pictures. It's interesting to see what kind of Canadian brands you have up there, and also to see what American brands have established presences up in your country.

I actually took the bus out there for this, and also one other time when my car was in the shop. It was probably faster than driving. Unfortunately, there were fewer than 10 people on the bus each time (a Saturday and a Sunday).

This route is packed on weekdays though. Lots of commuters in Barrhaven use the transitway.

For those unfamiliar with Ottawa, Barrhaven is a suburban area separated from the main city by a wide greenbelt.


Oh, I think there might be a Harvey's inside that Home Depot...

I posted a photo of a brightly colored daycare for those wondering what I am talking about. The link broke and was replaced by a message to visit C*ty-Data.com which was a little weird.

It never crossed my mind to go take pictures in Barrhaven. You proved that it was possible to make it look interesting (at least in a creative way)

Something different from you this time Flar but nevertheless you make the Big Box Stores look nice. I love the shots of the parking lots... concrete jungles! Unfortunately... no Harvey's in that Home Depot. There is a Five Guys by the Canadian Tire now!

Mint photos, disgusting environment. It looks exactly like the 'power' centers in Kelowna.
