365-191 Hangin’ at the courthouse

Well I wasn’t really hanging out (although there are some questionable characters who do) but just stopped by for a few photos. Sundays are a nice time to check out some of the architecture around the downtown area because there are few people milling about. I thought I would go onto the steps of the courthouse and get a different view of things since I’m not usually up there for any reason (I think that’s a good thing). I saw the whiskey tax sign and thought it would make a good shot because it seems odd. It’s probably for some type of re-enactment because I don’t think folks are actually concerned about taxes on whiskey. I took a few other shots in the general area while;e I was there. The hotel in the last shot is the George Washington Hotel which once housed presidents and the Beatles, according to legend. Pentax K20D, DA17-70, DA55-300, polarizer.

    I am used to seeing mediocre daily shots. Thanks for changing that. I will be sure to find my way back here in the future.

      Thank you. Stick around and you will either be rewarded or disappointed! I certainly have my share of mediocre shots but I do try to be creative somewhat. I started my 365 not so much to show my daily life (believe me, it’s dull) but to push myself in my photography. I don’t live in a naturally photogenic area so I have the extra challenge of making something out of nothing. I realize my work may not have mass appeal but, to me, mass appeal means “nice” photos. Pleasant photos of pleasant things. In the end if even a few others like viewing my photos then I have succeeded.
