Welcome to my photoblog. I try to keep it updated daily with a new photo from either my personal or professional life. It is not intended to be taken as my professional portfolio (please visit the main website for that), but instead it is more of an informal and fun way for me to share some of my personality and creativity with you. Many of the photos on my blog are available for purchase as fine art prints, please visit the main website and/or contact me if you are interested. Enjoy!

Lemieux Island Water Purification Plant

Earlier this year I got a chance to visit the Lemieux Island Water Purification Plant during Door's Open Ottawa. From the first look of things when you step inside, you would wonder how this place could ever be a water treatment plant. It is absolutely gorgeous inside with it's high vaulted ceilings, marble throughout, and accented with solid brass everywhere. It was at one point in time the "in" place to use as a banquet hall by city officials when it was built in 1931. It's still a fully functioning water purification plant, however it's banquet days are over. Enjoy!
