The Perimeter Institute

Perimeter Institute and the new Steven Hawking Centre

This picture is a repost but the Perimeter Institute is world renowned. It is next in this series since it is behind the Clay and Glass Gallery that I posted yesterday. You can see the Grist Mill, the Clay and Glass Gallery and the Perimeter Institute standing in one spot. The architecture of this building is quite interesting and it is pretty neat inside. I will have to see if they will let me shot the inside “public” area sometime. Here is a link to the original post.

Stay tuned and tomorrow I will post the next interesting building you can see standing in this one place in Waterloo.

This is a 3 exposure HDR fine tuned in Photoshop and other filters.


Abraham Erb’s Grist Mill

Abraham Erb's Grist Mill, Waterloo

This is a replica of Abraham Erb’s Grist Mill, in Waterloo. The original was built by Waterloo’s first settler – Abraham Erb. It is located at the south east corner of Waterloo Park. In a around this area are a number of interesting buildings to photograph. There is the Perimeter Institute, The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery, Centre for International Governance Innovation, The Seagram Lofts, the new Knox Presbyterian Church and the Waterloo Central Railway Station. I posted the Seagram Lofts yesterday and I will post the others in this series over the next few days.

This was shot as a 3 exposure HDR, converted to B&W and some of the colour blended back in.

Happy Birthday Stephen Hawking

Perimeter Institute and the new Stephen Hawking Centre

This past Sunday, January 8, 2012, was Stephen Hawking’s 70th birthday. September 17, 2011 the Stephen Hawking Centre had its Grand Opening at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo Ont. Canada. This is a shot I took this past summer and I thought I would post it in honour of Mr. Hawking’s birthday. If you would like to learn a little more about the Perimeter Institute and the Stephen Hawking Centre, here is a link.
