From May 3-5 I was in Ottawa for the CAJ Conference. I was there as a volunteer, to live-blog a few sessions (on finding a job after j-school, access to information laws in Canada and the States, and on making the transition from reporting to managing). But while I wasn’t in the hotel, I was sight-seeing and taking some amateur photography. You can check out the photography highlights under the jump!

The National Press Building.
The shops on Clarendon.

The Supreme Court of Canada— a place I hope to report from in the future!
Weird, fantastic art by the Rideau Canal.
