First Presbyterian Church in downtown Edmonton was constructed in 1911. The mottled effect of this photo of one of the north main floor windows comes from the reflections of a neighbouring office towers
I've just recently started to build up a collection of images taken in the central part of Edmonton. The collection will define itself and the parameters will evolve as I go along; at least that's the plan. This photo was taken about a week ago. The building itself is nothing special but the lattice work on the front of it is quite compelling.
Canon EOS 1Dx with Canon 24mm TSE lens. F/11 @ 1/100 sec. Black and White Conversion made with NIK Silver Efex Pro software.
I took this photo with the iPhone Hipstamatic App. It was taken in our local off leash park and is taken from a height of about 20" over a pond that had a thin layer of ice on it. Small bubbles were caught in the ice as it froze. The ice is quite fragile causing me to work fast as a certain spaniel was frolicking about and I wanted to get the shot before he stomped through the picture space.
At this time of year there's all sorts of cool stuff underfoot. Snow melts and forms puddles that get a layer of ice over top that cracks as people - or in this case a certain spaniel - stop on it. The grass frozen in the water below makes for a nice addition to this abstract photo.
