Urban landscapes: history at night
HALIFAX CITADEL NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE, NOVA SCOTIA
During a recent business trip to this eastern Canadian city, I was blessed to have time on my own to explore the city’s downtown. The citadel is a prime feature, with this building the front face of a massive, star-shaped British fort built in the 1800s.
The challenge was making the building stand out against a very busy urban background. Hopefully, I accomplished that by putting the tower between the office building and a distant tower. There was very little strong colour in this pre-dawn scene, so it was an easy decision to go black-and-white.
