A stroll down the pedestrian trail alongside the Saint John River on the south-side of Fredericton is often a peaceful and scenic retreat. As fall is quickly turning into winter the temperature has dropped accompanied by frigid temperatures and fallen leaves. The imposing Old Government House looms large. The official residence of the Lieutenant Governor General of New Brunswick is one of the highlights of this journey. The house was erected on 1826, designed by James Woolford encompassing Georgian and Adams influences. The estate is owned by the Queen in Right of New Brunswick. It is where the Royal Family and other foreign dignitaries often stay when in Fredericton. Furthermore, it is open to the public and is often the central location for events such as Canada Day and New Brunswick Day.

For the photographer, having a symmetrical image when taking shots of architecture or landscape is often an important consideration. It’s important to ensure you’ve got a level perspective when taking your shot. Taking an extra second or two to make necessary adjustments before you take the exposure will ensure a more symmetrical image. Also, the post processing technique of cropping allows one to remove clutter that takes away from the principle subject.
