I'm a master of procrastination.
Last weekend, on the day before I was planning to prepare the latest Where In Ottawa photo challenge, I was feeling under the weather, and so, instead of going out to take a photo of a new location for the contest, I delved into my library of photos that I had shot in the past but had not yet used.
I have backups for this contest, just in case.
But as I was about to create the blog post, the wire that leads into my house and connects to my Internet and TV router failed, and I was unable to use my computer.
If only I had prepared in advance.
Nevertheless, I vowed to have a photo challenge in February, but only a week later.
Being a master of procrastination, I held off taking fresh photos until yesterday, and set out just as the snow storm started. I suppose I could have used the same photo that I was going to use last weekend, but I was feeling that I needed to get out of the house, and I wanted to save the other photo for a time when I was unable to go out.
Besides, it would have been a confusing photo to use, considering I had shot it during summer.
Braving the storm—witnessing one collision and narrowly evading a second—I set out and drove out all over the city. I didn't have this location in mind when I hit the streets, but as I passed it, it called out to me. And here we are.
The rules of Where In Ottawa are simple: below,
you will see a photo that I shot somewhere in the Ottawa area. Your job
is to identify the location by leaving a guess in the Comments section of this blog post.
You must leave
your guess only in this post to qualify. Because the comments are time-stamped, everyone who plays can see the date and time that an answer is submitted.
If you try to guess by any other means, whether you're right or wrong, I won't respond to that guess and you can't win.
For every day that the challenge isn't solved, I'll leave a clue in the top-left corner of my blog. Above the This is Me section. But for this month's challenge, the first clue is in the photo.
first person to correctly identify the location wins the challenge. You can guess as many times as you
Ready for the challenge?
