It’s a good a day as any to remind ourselves that not everyone has the luxury of Valentines Day.
The weatherman said that it was -35°C (-31°F for my American friends) yesterday.

Having a Beavertail and a cup of hot chocolate on the canal is a winter tradition here in Ottawa. Their canteens can be found up and down the length of the Rideau Canal skate-way and at any winter event on both sides of the river.

I’ve been in a number of discussions with those who would take issue with labeling this image as “street photography” because of the lack of a “street” and/or a distinctly urban environment within the image. I use a definition that fits within that found on Wikipedia.
Street photography is photography that features the human condition within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. The subject of the photograph might be absent of people and can be an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.
