Day 318 - Centennial seat of power
Since the beauty of this building is associated with, inter alia, its straight lines, you really don't want to distort them in order to try to get the entire edifice in the photo.
As the home of many of the Province's governmental departments, the Centennial Building attracts its share of political action, including this protest against the practice of hydro fracking. I attempted to minimise the presence of the protesters by taking the photo from the far end of the building, while still capturing the long, sixties-era lines of the office block. Still, having the protesters there does help both to complement those lines and remind one of the importance of the decisions that come out of the tenants of the building itself.
