HOK #66: Dorothy Johnson

Meet Dorothy Johnson.

“I was born in Nova Scotia, in Annapolis Valley. I moved to Ottawa 30 years ago, and to the Kitchissippi three years ago. I moved here because of family. I like this area. I like that it’s building up and making some changes. I like to go all over. I like to visit the shopping centres because I’m retired now so I have lots of time. I don’t have anything special planned this year, for Canada’s 150th birthday, although I’m half way there myself. I have four kids, seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren. I tell them to take each day as it goes, you take the ups and the downs and move on.”

Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our collection of humans right here.
