KAP 2008-13: Museum of Civilization, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. March 16, 2008.

The goal of this outing was to take photographs the Parliament Buildings from midway across the river using Kite Aerial Photography (KAP), by launching the kite and camera equipment from the shoreline in front of the Museum of Civilization in Hull (Gatineau), Québec. The wind was unexpectedly blowing parallel to the shore instead of at right angles and consequently the views are not as “near” as anticipated. However it did provide an opportunity to photograph the Museum itself from a close angle. KAP colleague Matt Young was also KAPing at the same time. Here are a few of the images from this outing with a view from the Québec side of the Ottawa River from above the grounds of the Museum of Civilization.

  2. Awesome shots – I especially like the one overlooking the lock and old city hall. I grew up in Ottawa, seeing my old stomping grounds is great 🙂

  3. Nice shots, I remember driving over the Alexandra bridge to go hang out in Quebec…. I love that city. For some reason I tend to visit it during the last month of the yr. Its awesome
