The curlicues of this spire on the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa adorn a rather gloomy sky.

  1. I like this. A very good shot!

  2. Ooh, bunches of pointy bits. I can hear them now, the spire designers, deciding to put a pointy bit here, another there, and one over there, too… “wouldn’t it be loverly?”
    Beautiful photo, Lesley, perfect title to sum it up.

  3. Super shot! What a great weathervane that is. A lot of craftsmanship involved there.

  4. I would not have guessed this spire was on the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, – I have been lax in noticing the details, and they are really quite beautiful.

  5. Rather frilly pointy bits. (I’m just saying.) I wonder if our members of Parliament look up often to see which way the wind is blowing. 🙂

  6. Beautiful architecture. Grey sky as we had yesterday. Have a great weekend.
