Carleton Place Photowalk

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

On a recent Sunday this summer a group of photography buddies travelled with me 30 min Southwest outside of Ottawa, Ontario to photographically explore the small community town (pop. 10,000) of Carleton Place. We walked a couple of hours through the small downtown core photographing what we saw as being visually interesting. Afterwards we visited the new Waterfront Gastropub along the Mississippi River for a mid afternoon bite.

All-in-all we had a chance to create some neat photographs of a quiet town, eat good food, relax, and talk photo. What more could you ask for?
