365:2 Downtown Ottawa

Market Vegetables, originally uploaded by Dave Hassar.

I've been wanting to get downtown ever since I got my camera (yes only a week!) but during the week its not so convenient but we managed to get down to the market today. We ended up meeting, totally by chance, a couple of my aunts and uncle who were acting as tour guides for some of their out of town relatives. We walked down the fruit and veggies part of the market together and then we split cause they were going inside the pavilion (to the Obama bakery) and I wanted to head up to parliament hill. I got some good photos up there as well and I might pull some of those out if I can't get out to take a new picture one day, or some might be up on my flickr page. I took both my lenses today and had the 70-200 2.8 L on for the good part of the day which was kinda overkill for the tight spaces and crowds of the market but I got by and it was pretty helpful when we got up to parliament hill. I did end up using the 50mm on the way back and got some shots i was happy with with that lens as well.

Well I've pretty much run out of things to say so I guess I will wrap it up. Hopefully we will be heading out to Pink lake in Gatineau park tomorrow so that will get me some more photos to add to the collection. By the way today's shot total that i kept so far was 257, i think that is a record for me, hehe.
