Earth Hour

This Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 is Earth Hour. One of the places hosting the event is Parliment Hill. We will meet up ( gee is that how we got the name :-)  just inside next to the LCBO on the east side ( just in case you wanted to buy some light refreshments ) .

    Hey Everyone.
    The original plan was to click a few pictures and head back home but after seeing the enthusiasm of all the people and the entire environment, I decided to make this small video. I linked the video to the growing concerns of weather changes and the deterioration of the Earth with a small message at the end.
    Hope you guys like my work. Link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnaGKQPBf8I&feature=youtu.be

    I must say the images being posted are wonderful... With the exception of mine (humor only). Very good effort by all.

      Keep your eyes peeled, you will be in Ontario, topless in public is NOT against the law... However, it is against our "Terms of Service Agreement" so you can't post the resulting image on our site.. Bummer, so to speak....

    what exactly happens on parlement hill?

    March 28, 2014

    • Shawn Michael M.

      Nothing, officially... But according to a friend of mine who watched the monitors, people fish money out of the Eternal Flame, add water to it or in the case of my daughter, receive a marriage proposal (all of the forgoing are recorded by the CCTV cameras.

    • Richard

      ah well then ... i will bring fish.

    We are expecting flurries.
    If your camera is not weather proof, wrap a bag around it with elastic bands so you can have the lens and back clear and the shooting button easy to push.
    Cling wrap works good but it stops clinging so use rubber bands for that too.
    If you are not sure about the weather sealing on your camera, go to the interwebs to find out. It's in there somewhere!
    I am going to get in the closet and practice shooting low light shots. See you all there!

    There is free underground parking at the World Exchange Plaza on weekends. Access to parking is from Metcalfe at Albert. Let's meet just inside next to the LCBO on the east-side of the building.

  • Dvora R.

    BTW - I got a tripod!! Should I be bringing this along (novice that I am)

    March 26, 2014

    • Shawn Michael M.

      Yes, always bring a tripod, if for no other use than to get in the image.

      March 27, 2014

  • Dvora R.

    Actually to park I believe you go down Metcalfe and at Albert you can go straight into the parking lot on the left hand side

    March 26, 2014

  • Kathy

    The World Exchange Plaza in Downtown Ottawa. The eastern side is marked by a large plaza modeled after the Roman Coliseum. The most important aspect of this place, as a good meetup venue is Free parking each week-end. 2 Entrances: Metcalfe & Albert / Queen & Metcalfe
