I probably have too many photos of this most imposing of the embassies in Ottawa. As it was voted the biggest eyesore when it was built in 1999, it is perhaps not so scenic, especially on this rainy day, but here is a full view of the American embassy from atop the Peace Tower in the Parliament Buildings. Other views can be found here and here.

  1. That must be a beautiful city and I love it a bit hazy. Great shot.

  2. I like the shot, but if that’s my country’s embassy, I’ve got to say that we could have built a building to fit in with the surroundings much better.

  3. I am not going to argue with the eyesore opinion. Yuck. But your photos (all three) are terrific. I like the moodiness of this shot in the rain.

  4. Very foggy day, huh? Nice capture.
