As I mentioned a few days ago, I made a visit in March to the National Gallery of Canada to take in an exhibit before it came to an end. I approached the main entrance from the north, framing it with Notre Dame across the street. The Gallery has roots that date back to 1880, and has been here at the Sussex Drive location since 1988 in a granite and glass building designed by architect Moshe Safdie.
Heading in, I paused to photograph the view south, taking in the American embassy, the Connaught Building, the Chateau Laurier, and Major's Hill Park.
The path to the gallery spaces heads up this long ramp (with elevators for those who require that). It leads to the glass tower.
Once in the glass tower otherwise called the Great Hall, I photographed this corridor leading off to the north.
And I framed Parliament Hill from here as well.
The look of the glass tower is irresistible for the photographer.
This was the reason for my visit, to get another look at the Alex Janvier exhibit before it closed; it is in its final days, ending on Easter Monday. I showed you some of the retrospective from my last visit back in January. We'll start looking at some more of it tomorrow.
