Where In Ottawa: The July Edition

Happy Canada Day!

As many of my fellow Canadians celebrate the 146th anniversary of confederation, I wanted to also remind you that today is the first Monday of the month, which means that fellow Ottawans have something else to celebrate: the Where In Ottawa contest.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this contest, the rules are very simple. Below, I have a photo of somewhere in this great city, the capital of Canada. Your job is to tell me where I shot it. But there are a couple of catches:
  • If you were with me when I shot this photo, you cannot play, so please don't tip anyone off.
  • If you know where this photo was shot, you must leave your answer in the Comments section of this post (that is, no tweets, Facebook posts, or e-mail messages will be accepted).
That's it.

If you are the first person to correctly identify this location, I will reward you with a PDF copy of my novel, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary, with the following exception: if you have already won a Where In Ottawa challenge, no giveaway will be awarded, but you will still have bragging rights.

Ready for the challenge? Here it is:

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

Good luck, and Happy Canada Day!

Update: Where In Ottawa has been solved. The solution will be shown on Monday, July 8.


  1. The Ottawa Waterworks (@OttawaPete AKA @Ideajuice)

    1. I'm not saying that you're right or wrong, Pete, but I wanted to point out that there are a few water works in Ottawa. Did you have one in mind?

  2. I'm going to guess it's the Brittania plant.

    1. Sorry, it's not the Britannia water plant. Good guess, though!

    1. Yes! Congratulations, Marc: send an e-mail to and I'll respond with a PDF copy of my book.

  4. I've already got the book :) I waited until the 4th clue in case somebody else guessed it by then...

    1. Excellent! In that case, enjoy your bragging rights! And I hope you enjoyed the book.

      I'll post the solution on Monday.
