I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit with this photograph to emphasise the fact that this is a young girl. The idea that parents bring their children to protests that sometime involve hate, to me, teeters on the sharp blade of ethics. This girl is probably around 12 or 13 years old.

Once in a while I’ll come across a list on “Where to photograph in Ottawa?” Well… why not try the steps on Parliament Hill? So many happy faces, so much pride and just a lot of fun.

The Magic of it All

Parliament Hill – Sunday

It’s easy to get annoyed by an image that just doesn’t quite make the grade such as this one ( the face is not in focus ) because we all seem to strive for some form of perfection.

If there’s a magic in photography, it lies in how we live the special moments and what we walk away with.
