Immediately after lamenting my lack of picture taking over the past few weeks, I found myself taking pictures of everything.
The Where In Ottawa location. The snowfall at work and at Hog's back. A foggy sunrise. Bottles and cans of beer. Cars that parked too close to mine, in case they left a mark.
Just before the snow came, I made a stop along Queen Elizabeth Drive to shoot the crescent moon and the hundreds of ducks and geese that have flocked to the Rideau Canal.
By the time I was parked and set up, it was too dark to see the fowl creatures and wisps of cloud were obscuring the moon. I could see cars lazily cruising Colonel By Drive, across the drained Dow's Lake, with Carleton University in the background.
I was there, anyway: I may as well take the shot. And, besides, the light from the distant buildings was reflecting nicely off what little water remained in the lake.
It wasn't going to be a slow night, after all.
