Balconies of the day

HALIFAX — These balconies offer pizzazz in their own distinct ways.

The one pictured above is a real perk for whoever snagged the corner office at the Time + Space Strategic Media office building. Actually, it replaces the corner office. The balcony is a retreat from the summer bustle. It offers a time to contemplate, to ponder.

On the flipside, the tower behind Fire Station No. 3 on West Street puts it all out there for everyone to see. The concrete pillar offers up a festival of chains, stairs and iron beams. Crows hang there after firefighters are done refining their aerial rescues. Raw function is what these balconies offer. It’s all about public service. The view of the Kiss concert is not so hot, but listening to lead singer Paul Stanley while dangling in a stretcher makes up for it.

This post inspired by the Prince of Petworth’s “Door of the Day” awards. The Prince ain’t from Halifax, but we don’t hold that against him at all.
