Quebec City, QC, July 2011
About this photo: It's bricks and mortar week over at Thematic, and we're still taking contributions to the photographic cause. Right here.There's a humbling feeling associated with standing in front of a piece of engineering that was built hundreds of years before any of us existed. This is part of the wall that protected the old city here from attack, a fixture that's as fundamentally responsible for the history of this country as anything else. It's one thing to read about it in a high school class - as I did so many years ago - and quite another to come here, stand in its very shadows and touch it with my fingertips.
Your turn: What does history mean to you?
