    • Thank you, Bente! I agree: these old places have so many stories to tell.

    • Thank you, Joanna. Yes, that’s what struck me when I was setting up the shot. I was glad the other window came through in the photograph so clearly.

    Black and White favorite!
    Great cropping job too – I know that is an art within itself!

    • Pam, you just pinpointed one of the things I really enjoy about this shot myself! When I was setting up this shot, I was so surprised by how much there was to SEE in the frame! It was as though things were sneaking into the image at the last second.

  8. Omigosh! LOVE. IT. Spot on composition. Black and white was definitely the way to go to really show off the texture and contrast. Excellent.

    • Thanks, Carissa! This was a lucky spot. I literally yanked my car off the side of the road when I saw it. It’s a in a VERY small town, and I was obviously NOT from there. Some of the locals just stared at me as I marched right over to this building, which clearly no one else paid the slightest attention to, and took the shot. I didn’t stick around to take several, so I happy this one turned out. 🙂

  9. How come I always go into moderation now?

    April 28, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    • Comments for my blog always go into moderation first. However, I’m considering changing that. When I first started the blog in January, I definitely wanted to monitor comments in advance, since I wasn’t sure of the types of things people would say. I have had a few comments I’ve had to delete from whack jobs, so this is what holds me back from changing that.

    • Thanks so much, Mike. I’m glad you like it. Not sure if you saw my “Around my new haunt” post the other day, but I thought of you when I was there. I had a feeling it might be your kind of place.

  17. Excellent composition!
    Do you have the colorful version of this picture Melanie? It would be nice to try a selective color, leaving in color the glass and what it reflects.

    • I do! And that’s a great suggestion, Pablo. I will definitely give that a try. Thanks!
