From yesterday morning, until this morning I wore a so called Holter monitor. It’s a 24hrs ECG … like a tape recorder. My doctor just wanted to rule out atrial fibrillation … I don’t suffer from anything serious — at least it doesn’t feel that way. In any event, when I looked at myself in the mirror, noticing all the cords underneath my T-shirt I thought of Tony Soprano and Pussy 😀
During those twenty four hours, I thought I’d go on with my life as usual, so we were out in the glorious weather, took some pictures.
Have you ever kept on taking the same subject, but still didn’t feel that you got it just right?! That’s how I’ve felt about the bridge over the Reversing Falls. Don’t know how many photos I have of the same bridge, but as of yesterday I can say that I’m rather happy with it.
It wasn’t planned — it was just that I decided ‘playing tourist’ in my own town, and climbed up on the observation deck above the Falls. Immediately saw that this was the way I wanted the bridge to be shot!
Took a walk across the bridge — something I’ve only done once before! They’ve put up a monument in memorial of an accident that happened a number of years ago … a gas station blew up on this spot, where this now sits. I don’t know what the thought behind this art work is — in my touristy escapades, I forgot to read the plaque.
Yesterday morning, when we drove up to the hospital, we drove by the copper dome from the old General Hospital. It’s located in a very busy intersection, I’ve shot it once before but wasn’t happy with my shot at all. Now, as we were driving up, I saw that I could get a shot where the Stone Church appeared right in between the pillars of the dome … or so I thought!
So … this morning, as we drove up there to return the Holter, I decided to give it a go. Carefully crossed the streets, and walked down, in the wet, newly mowed, grass to compose my shot. Now … I don’t know how I saw it from the car, but the only part of the Stone Church I got in the frame was the uppermost tips.
The General Hospital was a landmark, opened 1931 and imploded 1995, so I never saw it. There are time capsules underneath the dome.
Now we have the Regional Hospital a bit outside of the city and St. Joseph’s, which was the one I went to today.
