Happy Canada Day 150 – Ottawa, Ontario

I visited Ottawa for Canada Day celebrations with Sylvia, daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren.  Spent a couple nights in a local hotel to be closer to the festivities.

What a fiasco!  Security was in place like at airports, but the lineups were atrocious!  No toilets . . . no buskers . . . no large screens to see the festivities on Parliament Hill . . . no street food to speak of!  Many people were very disappointed.

Here are some memories of that day.


Rick Ogrodzinski is an accomplished photographer specializing in Event Photography, Family Gatherings, Portraiture and Street Photography.  Capitalizing on his degree and long experience as a Chemical Engineer, he is detail-oriented in his photography . . . his “passion”. You will never meet Rick without his camera!
