Camera: Pentax 6x7, 105mm Super-Multi-Coated Takumar lens. Victoria Island, Ottawa, ON.

This is the main Domtar plant on the site, and one of the two remaining pulp and paper operations in an area that was once famously defined by that industry. The plant is slated to close in the next couple of years. The federal government has been eyeing this site for many years, as it is a significant piece of land right next to downtown Ottawa. Hopefully it will be re-used for something creative, and not just torn down to become mediocre offices or condos.
