Biblical Beauty

Another photo taken from my outing, with Marlene, this past Saturday. Regardless of religious beliefs (or disbeliefs), the Notre Dame Basilica on Sussex is a sight to behold. It is absolutely stunning inside and out. Unfortunately, most of my indoor photos didn't turn out but no worries .... it just means I have to go back! (ooohhh Marleeeeeene lol)

Urban Tranquility

Urban Tranquility, originally uploaded by Asillem (Mellisa).

I spent the day Saturday with Marlene visiting a few places in Ottawa. The first place we went to was the beautiful Notre Dame Catherdral on Sussex Dr. Religious or not, it is a sight to behold.

This photo was taken in a park on Wellington and Bay St. Its a piece of solice on the middle of this bustling city. Funny thing is ... I now see it for it's beauty rather than the swimming structure I used it for many years ago.

On a side note ... this entry officially turns my blog into a photography and scrapbooking blog rather than just a scrapbooking blog. Looks like the updates will be closer together now. :-)

This photo was taken during a Winterlude Flickr meet. A gentleman sitting about 6 seats away took this and I had no clue that he had until it was posted on the flickr site. I have no idea what I was thinking about - or even if it was anything all that profound - but it was obvious that my thoughts that were happy ones. My goal for this layout was simplicity. It's not 100% as I invisioned it but I am pleased with the results. Photo credit go to Total Photo. Thanks, Leon.
(thanks to my super quick scan while at work today, I managed to cut off part of the 'N' as well as the black cardstock around the edges .... but you get the point.)

On a side note ... Happy 4th Birthday to my sweetest nephew, Connor.
Love you, buddy!
