Beaver Barracks photos

Spacing Ottawa – a blog about Ottawa’s urban landscape – is using the photo I took of the Beaver Barracks complex as their photo of the day.

It was taken inside the eight-story tower at 464 Metcalfe, looking across the central space that will eventually contain a community garden. The four-story building you can see is the one I live in (160 Argyle). While I did everything I could to reduce the amount of inside lighting, you can still see some reflected in the windows (this being a 30″ exposure).

I have a whole set of Beaver Barracks photos on Flickr. Some of them are taken directly from the roof of 464 Metcalfe, so they don’t have the reflection issue I mentioned.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
