Preserving The Past by bkbinthecity

Preserving The Past

So I am moving on from the university campus and decided to go for a walk downtown. When the new Royal Alberta Museum was built it was built on the site of the old Edmonton Post Office. To help preserve a connection to the post office they kept the stone mosaics that were a part of the facade from the post office
What a great shot of this beautiful building, love the stone mosaics.

I like this combination of mosaic, glass and trees.

Great composition, I like the line of trees, nice textures.

I agree with all the above comments - the mosaics and trees make for a great composition. I think the people and little yellow fire hydrant live this photo even more life. Fav!

A lovely idea. It works so well.
February 28th, 2021  
Works really well !
February 28th, 2021  
What an amazing idea! So nice to see that they have kept these mosiacs for posterity. We are losing many buildings which will soon be forgotten as they are pulled down without any respect to the past.

Interesting structure
February 28th, 2021  
A wonderful idea & works so well...
February 28th, 2021  
Very nice architecture
February 28th, 2021  
lovely capture ...
February 28th, 2021  
Nice repetition.
February 28th, 2021  
beautiful building and trees.
February 28th, 2021  
Beautiful capture and POV.
February 28th, 2021  
Lovely trees and mosaics. I wonder if cropping out some of the road would focus more attention on the trees and mosaics .
February 28th, 2021  
wonderful that they preserved the past - always a healthy sign
February 28th, 2021  
I can’t add anything. It’s all been said. Love it
February 28th, 2021  
A super shot, really good that the mosaics have been incorporated in the new building. They make a lovely series of features!

Looks beautiful there.
February 28th, 2021  
Really nice shot
February 28th, 2021  
Love the trees in front of the beautiful mosaics. Great capture
February 28th, 2021  
Great capture of the mosaics...neat contrasts between all of the elements
February 28th, 2021  
Lovely shot. The trees is a good graphical element here. I guess it will be totally different view when the foliage is back on the trees
February 28th, 2021  
Great contrast between old and new.
February 28th, 2021  
I like how they've trimmed the trees! Great shot!
February 28th, 2021  
Very cool
February 28th, 2021  
That was a good idea because they look really nice on the facade and of course are quite artistic! Why wouldn't a museum want something like that on their building? Nice shot!
February 28th, 2021  
Love the trees and the mosaic. Nature and art.
February 28th, 2021  
The mosaics reminds me of an art style I started seeing everywhere a couple of years ago. It drove me crazy not knowing what to call it and I remember the eureka moment I had when I found this style has a name: De Stijl. I *think* these fall into that category. Anyway, thought I'd pass that on. Nice capture :)
February 28th, 2021  
great idea mixing old and new.
February 28th, 2021  
Love the mix!
February 28th, 2021  
Very nice line up.
February 28th, 2021  
very cool
February 28th, 2021  
That must have been a fancy post office with a mosaic. Great idea.
February 28th, 2021  
I’m enjoying your walk about Edmonton...
February 28th, 2021  
A nice view of the contemporary building housing the museum. I'm glad they paid homage to the original use of the site by saving the mosaics, which look very nice set up in front of the building as they are.
February 28th, 2021  
Always nice to see a local government preserve its history
February 28th, 2021  
What a lovely idea, it looks very smart
February 28th, 2021  
Great shot
February 28th, 2021  
Such a great building. How nice they kept those mosaics.
February 28th, 2021  
Like it when some of the past are preserved for now and the future. . great shot
