Day 398, The Lodge

The Lodge on King William road is an aged care facility and as such is well lit all night creating a dramatic presence not so noticeable during the day.

While taking this image I was approached by security, advised I was on private property and ask what I was doing. Being private property I understood the image was in the balance and how I responded would mean the difference between being able to show this image or not. I simply stated that I was creating a private collection of images depicting important local architecture. Without waiting to be challenged further I went on to describe the technical difficulties in creating an image like this. I guess my earnestness and enthusiasm paid off. Convinced I was doing not harm I was allowed to finish taking this image without further protest.
