Downtown Ottawa seems to be in constant construction mode. Most buildings and streets are being upgraded, fixed, or rebuilt. Most of Wellington street in front of Parliament Hill is, or has been, in a state of repair, such that the city could be renamed Scaffold Town. I presume most of this is due to the fact that in 2017 it will be the 150th anniversary of confederation in Canada, and things need to look all perfect for the country to come visit.
Recently, another building has been swallowed up by scaffold. It does make an interesting pattern, such that one day I made this image with my X100.
