Transmogrify

A gentle group of tourists on a walking tour of Downtown Halifax gather infront of a spotlight. 

The effect is spooky!  

Conjures up thoughts of all the souls who have passed through the doors of this, the oldest building in Halifax and the oldest Protestant church in Canada. St Paul’s Anglican Church held its first service on September 2, 1750 – just one year after Halifax’s founding.  The plans were based on St. Peter’s Church, Vere Street, London which was designed in 1722 by James Gibbs, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren.  Over two and a half centuries later, the original wooden structure remains as sound as the day it was built.

    That is a cool effect. I’ll have to check this place out the next time I’m in Halifax.

      Thanks Norm! Yes, do check it out. When you do, plan to spend some time reading the memorials that lie the walls inside. Fascinating!

    I wonder if the people were aware of their enormous shadows looming over them as they stood and looked at this beauteous building?

        Well I’m glad you didn’t stroll over and ask them – that would surely have scared them!!

        Hahaha! I wouldn’t think of it. 😂

    Lovely photo of the church…if the wooden structure is still standing after all those years, you wonder about modern day house structures!

    What a great shot – I love those tall shadows against the church wall, silent witnesses.

      Thanks!! It was a very cool moment. (Poor unsuspecting tourists)
