Ottawa street scene

There’s something about North American street scenes that I find incredibly photogenic. This particular image was taken on my recent trip to Ottawa. With the grid formation of the streets and traffic lights running into the distance, it looks typically North American. With the snow and ice on the ground plus the bi-lingual signage, however, I think this scene is unmistakably Canadian!

A street scene in Ottawa. At first glance it simply looks very North American but the snow, ice and bi-lingual street signs make this a very Canadian scene.

Most people are members of reward schemes of one form or another. New to the market is a reward scheme called Ice that doesn’t just enable you to build up and spend points with many family-focused retailers, it also helps you do your bit for the environment at the same time.
