Cross and Crescent

A Church and the Crescent Moon

This is a shot I took a few years back herein Medicine Hat. It was shortly after I moved to the city, and I was living in a horrible little place with no AC. It wasn't even a one bedroom apartment ... just a bachelor suite ... but it did have a balconey. Even though it was 35C that summer, it was more pleasant on the balconey than in the apartment.

About the only redeeming thing about the place was the view. Across the street was the main Cathedral for Medicine Hat, and while that wasn't always welcome early Sunday morning with bells, it gave many chances for pictures. This is the best one, IMO, especially in today's political climate. I like the justaposition of the Crescent Moon and Cross imagery.

Yes ... its definately one of those photos that is a result of the exact angle at the right time of day, on the right day of the year, with the right weather. Everything came together, and all I had to do was set the exposure (this was taken at about .5sec exposure, if I recall) and click the shutter.
