The New Trade Centre (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

I do not have a lot of love for modern architecture (preferring 800 year old castles and cathedrals), but as the new Halifax Convention Centre nears completion, I have found myself pondering its photographic potential, and pointing my lens towards it from time to time.

Much of my reaction to the building as a whole is negative, but I did enjoy the potential of elements - closer cropped compositions of elements of the structure set against an evening sky.

Ultimately, I don;t think I can set aside my gut response to the building (too big, too generic, and out of step with the city around it), but I do now have several compositions which are honest responses tot the building, and fit well within my limited work with modern buildings.
