Day 324 - The inscriptions of passing time

A detail shot from the court house in downtown Fredericton. I liked the way the word was carved into the stone in sharp, deep letters and I liked the several colours that show up in the shot.

This photograph is all about the framing, with the pointed top of the arch drawing the eye upward to the word and the two windowsills at the top providing further punctuation to the shot. As I take more and more of these kinds of photos, I am growing interested in the very physical way these buildings age, the way the passage of time inscribes itself on the stone, concrete and brick.
