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 fa├žades 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.
