Day 132 of 365

Ogilvy Building

Ogilvy Building

Good Friday – no traffic.

The Ogilvie Building in downtown Ottawa is being demolished. Designated under the Ontario Heritage Act in 2000, only the original 1907 building’s Rideau and Nicholas Street façades will be preserved when the building is incorporated into a planned
expansion of the downtown Rideau Centre shopping mall.

Spent some time looking over the prints made last night using fine art paper & archival inks. The detail and color rendition is quite exceptional – certainly not the results of your
average print shop. Add to that the size (larger than a monitor screen), and I’m
seeing things I didn’t notice before. A worthwhile project for anyone considering
hanging print versions of their images.
