A lot of people who don't live here think Ottawa is pretty boring, but I know better.

My name is Kristy Nease, I'm a journalist at CBC News in Ottawa, and I spend a lot of my off-duty time walking around the city and checking out awesome things.

In the summer and fall I made good use of all the running around I do by taking pictures of people I found interesting to look at.

This photo gallery was updated every Tuesday (sometimes Wednesdays) until Oct. 9, 2013, and it'll be back with fresh new entries in the spring of 2014.

Until then, check out the archive! And stay classy, Hottawa.
