A little while ago, my friend Evey was in town and was good enough to pose for some portraits around The Glebe. She writes a fashion blog called Hey, Good Lookin’.
Remarkably, despite being a native of Ottawa, Evey had never been to the Wild Oat restaurant.
It’s a nice place, with excellent loaves of olive bread available. Just don’t expect to find anywhere to sit during the most popular times of day.
I rather like this cape-like garment, and the thick wool is well-suited to Ottawa’s shortening days.
Octopus Books is an independent shop with an entire section devoted to ‘U.S. Imperialism’. Here, Evey is posing outside.
Proximity to the canal is one of the nice things about The Glebe as a neighbourhood. That, and the presence of Ottawa’s best bagel shop.
The bridge shown here is the same as the one incorporated into the current banner for this site, though I am going to need to find a Toronto bridge to substitute in fairly soon.
When Evey is back in Ottawa around Christmas time, I am hoping we will be able to add to these with some shots in the snow.
