Have you said hello to Ottawa?

We were just poking around on some of our favourite local blogs today, and of course, one of our first stops was Anne Patterson’s Hello Ottawa – a great project that photographs and interviews Ottawans about their relationship with the city, their favourite places, and their lives.

If you haven’t visited the site, you really should. Check out some of the people she is profiling!
