Peter Fowler’s OOE Focus

By Peter Fowler

Our intrepid photo editor, Peter Fowler, recently stomped the neighbourhood to add some new photos to his extensive portfolio of Old Ottawa East imagery. Always one to respond to a photographic assignment, and to see the community in a different manner than others, Peter responded with a number of intriguing photos, including this new take on Main Street’s wok-in dumpling house, Sula Wok.

Comments: This inside-out image of the alcove eating area outside of Sula Wok is interesting because of the curving lines of the shapes that are more often than not square or rectangular, but not in this case. The lensworks produce exterior walls that bend gently inward and blend in with the gentle curve of the wooden table in the foreground housing several of Sula’s own jewellery creations. Add to the composition the tall, curved storefront silk banner for the restaurant and one sees the full three-dimensional effect of rounded, arcing width, length and height.
