Welcome!


I loved Ottawa! The people there were certainly welcoming and I had a great time there. More looks at the city to come. Until then, you can see more murals at Mural Mondays.

Confidential to my husband: it's been a great five years. Hope we have many more!!!

Do "wise old owls"live in Ottawa? Might this be your anniversary?!

Paul in Powell River said...

That looks like the "Woodlands" school of aboriginal art. Very nice.

Nice welcome to the big city! Look forward to more pix...... and apologies for reading your confidential note ;>)..but happy belated anniversary (I'm guessing Ottawa was an Anniversary trip maybe?)

love the owl.
I guess you didn't run into any politiciians since you say everyone was 'friendly'!

Lowell said...

I guess I'd better put Ottawa on my "Bucket List." I've seen photos of the city but have never been there. So, you can be my tour guide. I'll look forward to many more of your pictures!

Have a great week!

How do you call a mural on a sidewalk?

Jack said...

An interesting sidewalk chalk drawing, Halcyon.

About that confidential message, I am sure no one but your husband saw it! Congrats on the anniversary.

Love the colors. It´s very artsy too. Thank you for sharing, and congratulations of your anniversary.

Love this - wondering if it is chalk or paint. Great colors, super capture.

That is a great looking owl!

Birdman said...

Some street art here.

Lois said...

Wonderful shot! I like the shadows too. Happy Anniversary!

RedPat said...

Great mural. I haven't been to Ottawa in years so look forward to your pics.

Very cool owl. Looks like a chalk drawing, which means it will disappear soon. Pity. Are owls somehow a local symbol? Someone took it upon himself to be the welcome wagon. Well done. Thanks for participating in this week's Monday Mural.

@All - today was our wedding anniversary. It's been a wonderful five years. :) Still one of the best decisions I've ever made.

@VP - I didn't actually think about it, but "mur"al does imply that it's on a wall, doesn't it?

@Hamilton - the politicians are on break for the summer. Must be when they let the friendly people out. :)

I don't think this was a chalk drawing. It rained while we were there and this "painting/drawing/sidewalk mural" remained intact. I also think owls must be some sort of symbol for Ottawa b/c I saw them quite often around town.

Randy said...

That is awesome.

Lowell said...

I can't think of a better place to celebrate a wedding anniversary! Congratulations and I wish you and your husband many more happy years together!

Tanya said...

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
