One morning getting up before the sun I took some photographs of buildings I’d never aimed the camera at until this time. As the sun rose the light and colors became more exotic. However little of that color shows in these photos, as I was after a different effect. The bottom line always is about depicting some kind of reality. Looking at the City Hall, formerly, a very long time ago, the post office the sun was no more than a gleam.
Duncan has its share of older brick buildings and that beautiful low building style of those days.
At any rate the sun now touches town and first of all the housing facility for some of our elderly, at the end of this road.
Walking to where the sun breaks into the scenery brings the Cowichan Tribes government buildings into view.
Amid the lush growth of the Cowichan Valley these buildings fit very nicely and leave space for idyllic and playful little spots.
It is partially the photo editing and partly the rapidly changing light that make for the coloring difference in the next photograph.
Here are a few more buildings from these grounds.
Time to walk back for a close up of that nice little statue in front of City Hall.
The common ingredient of these photographs is that beside the normal amount of photoshopping they have also had a run in with Pixlr Express, an online photo editor.
