Project 365 – Day 244: Old meets New

August 31 2012

Another milestone reached today being 2/3rds of the way through the year. 122 days left to go still seems a lot, but with autumn colors just around the corner, hopefully I’ll make it to the end – I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel.

As for today’s image…few days ago I was walking along Crescent Street south of Sainte Catherine and saw a great view that I knew I had to return to with my camera to capture.

The old buildings along rue Crescent (many being bars) are low-rise and provide for a great juxtaposition against the much taller modern office towers.

For a slightly different angle I walked up the adjacent rue Bishop.

I hadn’t really noticed before that the building on rue Sainte Catherine with the graffiti on the west wall almost matches the step design of the SUn Life building in the background.

I love shooting architecture and particularly when there is a juxtaposition between old and new. Today was a bit of a trial run and I’ve got some other locations I know are begging to be photographed, so be assured more will follow. Today, the rain stopped me shooting more😦

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
