Fall Colours at Vincent Massey Park

Sum­mer came and went and even if we still have some warm days left, it is def­i­nitely Octo­ber. Already. Green Day sang “Wake Me Up When Sep­tem­ber Ends” but I some­how missed the memo—I can’t believe it’s already Thanks­giv­ing today.

And don’t even remind me my due date is approach­ing.

That said, I don’t mind fall in Canada because it’s such a beau­ti­ful sea­son. It is less damp than in Europe and the famous stun­ning Eat Coast fall colours always amaze me. Besides, we had a really hot sum­mer and cooler tem­per­a­tures are actu­ally a nice change.

This Thanks­giv­ing week­end, we headed to Vin­cent Massey Park to take some fall colours pic­tures. The sun didn’t show up but the moody grey sky actu­ally height­ened the begin­ning of the tran­si­tion to fall, and the pic­tures came out okay.

Happy Thanks­giv­ing fel­low Canadians!

You can see all the Fall pic­tures on the Ottawa (Fall) set on Flickr.

  1. The col­ors are so amaz­ing :)

  2. So pretty Zhu! I’ve enjoyed fall the most this year, I think, of my last six years in Canada. :)

  3. Hi Zhu!

    Con­grat­u­la­tions for Mark! Just curi­ous, why did you choose the name Mark?

    I always love your fall pic­tures, espe­cially the pic­tures of Par­lia­ment. One day I plan to visit our National Capi­tol. I have been to Toronto and Mon­tréal and I have found them to be very friendly places.

    I was amazed in Toronto when a police­man came up to me on horse­back at City Hall. I didn’t know that they rode horses in Toronto. He asked me where I was from and I said Saskatchewan. He said OK and that I didn’t look like the usual douchebags that hang around Yonge Street. It must be a local tourist attrac­tion, I looked but I didn’t see any, maybe it was the wrong time of day to see them come out. All I seen was nor­mal peo­ple. What is a “douchebag” and how do you spot them?

    • Thank you!

      Feng sug­gested “Mark” and I loved it right away. We wanted a “sim­ple” name that could work in both Eng­lish and French and other languages.

      I’m sur­prised the police­man in Toronto spoke like that! Weird. I guess by “douchebags” he meant peo­ple hang­ing out there and look­ing for trouble…?
