Ottawa River Scene(IMG00302, 314, 318)

These photos were taken during my run along the Ottawa River on July 30, 2011:

Two musicians are playing their instruments next to some stone sculptures. The sun is setting and the Canadian geese are busy feeding on the green vegetation grown near the water. The Ottawa Rivers meanders its way through the west end of the city towards downtown and eventually flows out into the St. Lawrence near Montreal. All is peaceful and quiet. I took one last look at the river before continuing my way home.

HBB,I did watch the people how they found the centre of gravity of each stone and then built up the stone formations。

In many cases, cement is used to help the sculpture stand up against rain and wind.

Here in Canada, you can be peaceful and quiet like a stone but it's illegal to get stoned :O

Picture 2 stone formations were not “Inuksuk ”。

I have seen the building up at the square just opposite Eaton Centre downtown Toronto on one sunday afternoon!

I absolutely agree with you. The art was presented by a non-aboriginal artist who is good with creating stone formations. I put in the reference for comparison only.
