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.
