Since I have walked around downtown Fort William quite bit, I figured I would try to venture to different areas this time around. Aside from going down different streets, one of the things I sought out to do was head on over to the parkade.Once I got there, I found an entrance that actually had access and I was off to the races.
Upon entering, I headed to the 3rd floor. I figured I would make my way up to the top eventually, but first, I had to get a feel for the parkade. I can’t remember the last time I was ever actually in there but it was pretty much what expected. I wanted to make sure there weren’t any security guards walking around as I know in the past, if they see someone walking around with a camera, it piques their interest.
The coast was clear so I walked all around looking at the views and also any things that caught my eye in and around the parkade. There is a certain calming effect I get when walking around alone taking photos. With that being said, I do find myself either talking to myself most of the time or other animals. In this case, there were plenty of pigeons hanging around that I had one or two conversations with. I probably shouldn’t admit that I guess.
My favourite photo from up in the parkade was the one of the church across the street. Just the way it turned out with the very faint reflection of the window in which I shot through. I also got a few discreet photos of people walking and going about their day. Of course, it’s easy to get candid photos like that when you are 4 or 5 floors up.
The rest of the walk went by pretty fast and seeing as how I was starting to get cold I headed a bit sooner than I would have wanted to. I still came away with some good photos. As usual, I used my favourite street camera, the Fuji X-T1 and 35mm 1.4 combo. It just works so perfectly.
