When we moved to Saint John, back in 2008, I promised myself to never get “used to” its beauty and its … ‘quirkiness’. When we visited here, the first time, there were three things, over and above all, that made me fall in love: The ocean, the people and the red, brick buildings uptown. Since then, there have been many things added to it, but those three are still standing. I’ve made a point of never losing track of how much I love this little city … even the ‘uglier’ parts of town have their charm, in their own way … even a picture like this 🙂
After all, fog and decrepitated buildings are important parts of Saint John. It’s not just about glossy high-rises and cruise ships, even though that’s an every-day sight in the summertime.
A certain light can make even the cranes in the harbour look beautiful! I love the morning light most of all, but in recent times I haven’t been out to take advantage of it.
[Writing up a post with this many pictures, in the new editor, was a bit of a nightmare! Now I must go into the old and fix everything.]
