share the love for ottawa

Okay so what’s all this loveOttawa business you ask! Well it’s not complicated really. Almost everyone you ask will tell you that they love Ottawa for different reasons, whether they live here or are just visiting. So I thought it’d be a cool creative project to just get out there and ask people why they love Ottawa, and of course being a photographer – I’d take their photo!
Today I started the ‘loveOttawa project’ with my assistant Maija taking my photo and I’ll tell you a few reasons why I love Ottawa. “I love the people – especially the cultural mix of the people. I love the history and all the heritage architecture of Ottawa (like the old Conference Centre and The Chateau Laurier Hotel behind me). I also really love the creative openness of the town – folks here just always seem to openly embrace creative ideas (like this tourism side project)!”
If you’d like to participate in the project and tell us why you love Ottawa (yes you’d have to be photographed!) or you’d just like to follow us, you can find me at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or on twitter at @love_ottawa. Share the Love!
