Heyo! Went to downtown Ottawa to observe the National Day Of Honour to pay respect and to commemorate to those fallen in Afghanistan and to those returning from there. A nice big Canadian respect to the Canadian troops and to the end of Canada’s mission in Afghanistan.
(All images taken with a Lumix GF1 – Pancake lens.)
I missed out on the main parade and event while only catching the display. I ended up arguing with myself about going or not to only end up doing so for the display side because I would have felt a great regret for not doing so with it near me. I knew of it the day or few ago. I had to observe and capture something on camera while I’m in Ottawa for those that aren’t while others are. I do feel guilty for not catching the planes flying over head and missing the parade, though happy that I took many images of the display.
Do hope the images are enjoyable. Tried to keep them sharp, bright enough, and enjoyable.

Didn’t go with anything Anime with how startled and swiftly I left. Left so quickly that I even left my phone charging at home. Left both Vara & Renge at home to have a full Canadian experience on this day. I do feel a light regret or not bringing either when remembering others in other nations taking images on military vehicles.
Went in circles about three times to see if I could see specific vehicles and displays better. The rifles and guns section and the Chinook both being the most popular from the appearance of line-ups. Too bad I missed the flyby, though worth it from this display side.
My respects to those that have fallen and served in Afghanistan. Thanks for the display as well.
