This Camera Club of Ottawa outing was on a foggy Sunday morning. The assignment was to shoot urban images in Black and White at 400 ISO within the boundaries of Wellington Street to Laurier Street and Bay Street to Elgin Street. We could submit 6 images in total. These were my shots. Click on the image to find it on my website and you find another link at the bottom of each image to view the colour equivalent. I had to convert from colour in photoshop since the Nikon D70s doesn’t have the capability to shoot B&W. I find it preferable to convert in photoshop anyway.

Upper Canada Village has been a summer tourist destination for decades. It is located near Morrisburg, about 1 1/4 hours drive from Ottawa. For a number of years recently, Upper Canada Village has been open for about 5 weeks each winter (end of November to early January) for their Alight at Night festivity. In their words: “Bundle up for an evening stroll around the Village, and see heritage buildings all magically lit, with over a QUARTER MILLION lights … a true winter wonderland!” For information see their website at http://www.uppercanadavillage.com/night.htm. This year was the 3rd time I’ve attended this magical place. Here are a few images:
