The Garden in Black and White

Flowers in black and white. A different way to view our natural world. Seeing form over color. An artistic way to interpret our gardens. Seeing things differently, that is what photography should be about. http://www.debra-hunter.com Photography by Debra Hunter Red Deer, Alberta and Pender Island, BC, Canada . . . .

Architectural Photography in Black and White

Yesterday I was shooting a few architectural images for a client. Even when I am shooting something specific, I often look to take a few shots that appeal to me simply for their artistic merit.

The contrast of the steep peak of the church against the clouds caught my eye. Such strong lines made it so interesting.

The historic home edited to black and white was like stepping back in time. Elegant and timeless.

Other images from yesterday’s shooting can be found by clicking HERE.

It is so nice that spring has arrived, the blue skies are back, and soon we may even have leaves making for prettier pictures.

Heritage Square

Today’s post is a visit to Heritage Square, a quiet tucked away corner of  historic buildings located in the downtown area of Red Deer (Alberta, Canada).

This area is always picturesque, but becomes even more interesting once blanketed in snow. The area becomes quieter and more timeless.

The school is a very interesting building. The interior has also been preserved.  I have been lucky enough to see the inside of it on a couple of occasions when my children have been to the square on a school field trip. It is always great for children to see local history up close.

Library.

The library, that once belonged to a private home, is a very interesting building due to its shape. It sits front and center in the square as a showpiece while the other buildings flank the sides. The library indicates that even in the early years of the city that there was a lot of attention paid to architectural style and detail.

The feel of the square is enhanced by wooden sidewalks and lamps of a period styling. It is a spot well worth visiting no matter the time of year.
