Photographer's Note

Parliament Hill

Last year, I started my series of photos from North America with a photo of the US Capitol in Washington D.C. and even though this is my second photo from my recent visit to this part of the world, it features a similar place: Parliament Hill (French: Colline du Parlement) in Ottawa, Canada's capital.

The photo was taken a little over two weeks ago in the late afternoon. The light conditions could have been better, but from this side of the building they were easier to handle.

Seen here is the Centre Block of the Canadian Parliamentary Complex, which contains the House of Commons and the Senate. It was built between 1916 and 1927 after the original building had burnt down. The 92m-high clock tower, known as the Peace Tower, has become a Canadian icon.
