Photographer's Note

Tulip Festival in Ottawa, but where were the real tulips? On the last day of this festival that goes around almost the entire month, there was no tulip left to be seem in the gardens of the Parliament Hill, but the many tourists visiting the city that day seemed happy just to go aroung participating at the activities and visiting the atractions of this nice and usually calm city. The weather was a bit gray and a quick rain the beggining of the afternoon didn't stop people from going around. The only tulips I manage to see this year were this painted ones. They were displayed all around the area of the Parliament Hill on the Festival site. What caught my attention, besides the Tulips of course, is that the boy and his father holding hands reproduce the same posture pictured on the painted tulip. They also may represent the bond bettween Canada and Netherlands renovated every year trough the donation of the Tulip's Bulbs by Netherlands to Canada.
