L'Esplanade Laurier incognito

On one day in late June, dark clouds loomed over the North part of Centretown, with clear skies further South.

With the cyan reflection of the clear skies in the windows of l'Esplanade Laurier's two white marble towers, it's as though they weren't there, and Bank street was once again a two-storey 1900's main street.

L'Esplanade Laurier was recently bought by Public Works and Government Services Canada for a pretty good price, but they're also plagued with problems, particularly with the white marble, which is poorly suited to Ottawa's climate or high altitudes.

The patchy rain/sun patterns have played other interesting visual tricks this summer, as with the post Light Rain from late July.
