I'll let you in on a little trade secret: I collect pictures of Confederation Building. It's not a fetish; I use them for what we call a topstory image (also known as a headline image) for a story placed on our regional landing page at CBC. We try to add such an image to every story we produce, largely because of the popularity of how our news run is presented on smartphones like the iPhone. [Click here to get a sense of what I mean.]
Confederation Building is a frequently sought subject, because it's the pre-eminent symbol of the Newfoundland and Labrador government, not to mention the home of the legislature. Hence, I'm always looking for a new angle, a different backdrop, and something seasonally appropriate. I snapped this one myself this week.
