Capturing Parliament Hill with a creative eye
I’m Michel Loiselle, Graphic Designer/Photographer from Ottawa. I’ve been capturing our Canadian Parliament digitally since 2006. The collection took 7 years to complete. (Part-time, while working at the House of Commons on the Hill). It was evident from day one that this Parliament had many faces and personalities. Because of its configuration and architecture, you get a different view whenever you change angles. Here is the view most tourists see from the main gates on Wellington Street in Ottawa. It’s a great view!
Moving north across the river to Gatineau will give you a totally different Parliament with the Library and the Royal Alexandra bridge. It’s fantastic! This photo, Bridged Parliament, taken during magic hour, also features the World Exchange Plaza with its original ball clock on the roof.
From the east side during fall, yet an entirely different view of Parliament Hill. Every angle and season offers something new. I photograph Parliament year-round and am thankful for the experience. There’s something about taking your time with a photo while listening to mellow jazz on the iPod and giving in to the beauty. The gothic architecture simply takes me away every time.
Again, we cross the river at night with a full moon to see the true spectacle that is our Canadian Parliament.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit on Parliament Hill, and please drop in and see the 200+ Canadian Parliament collection of images on sale at mostphotos.com.
