Old radar dome, large format paper negative photography

Week 29 of shooting paper negatives each week of 2016.

A fellow photographer and I went West to the town of Vanastra, Ontario, home to a Canadian Armed Forces base during the second world war. It’s best known for this radar dome on the West edge of town. A business is being run in the old building so we couldn’t get inside, but it’s quite remarkable even from the exterior.
