Say what you will about BRT but it works pretty well in Ottawa. Some decent cycling infrastructure there too.

Thanks for the tour.

Thanks for the pictures, flar!

Those foggy shots are really amazing. Ottawa is a beautiful city. I´m wishing to return there and visiting again.

Congratulations and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Great set flar. I don't post often to say so, but I always appreciate these photo sets.

What he said.

You always seem to find new and fasinating ways to view the city. Thanks for sharing that with us.

I'm loving these pics! You've captured the best of Ottawa; the urbanism, the nature, the construction and growth we're experiencing, and even why we need LRT. You really captured the parts that make it look like a bustling big city.

Where was #25 shot from? I can't make it out.

Probably Montreal Rd near St.Laurent. I see some shots taken in the museum of sciences and technology too. Thanks for the great tour.

Great shots!

22 is the Nortel Networks exhibit at the Museum of Science and Tech. Not sure about 15 - the Gatineau Convention Centre maybe?

Àwesome photos! 14 really blew my mind
If ever you get the chance, try to take a picture from one of the top rooms of the Westin - it's a view to kill for!

I'm looking forward to the next photothread!

15 kind of reminds me of the NAC logo, but doesn't look like a place I'd find in the NAC.

Works very well where there is a dedicated transit way, those long lines of buses get really slow from the Rideau Centre through downtown.

As le calmar says, it's on Montreal Rd. a bit east of St. Laurent. One of my rare ventures to the east end.

15 is indeed the museum of science and technology. 22 is in Place du Portage Phase IV

The one with the thingies that look like the NAC logo (not sure if the number is 15 or 14) is in Place du Portage/Place d'accueil in downtown Gatineau (Hull).

I had 15 and 22 reversed. 15 is in Phase IV of Place du Portage in Hull and 22 is at the Museum of Science and Tech (in Ottawa)
