This is a view as seen from Henderson Avenue across the tracks that run behind the building.
I took this photo from a moving vehicle with a 5 megapixel point & shoot camera while going east on Henderson Ave.; the settings were 1/400 at f/5.0. I then converted the photo to black & white in Photoshop Elements, cropped it for the square look and gave it some basic edge vignetting, and finished it off with a little sharpening. As usual, you can click on the photo for a larger view and then hit your back button to return to the blog.
To me, the view of this building in B&W gives it some character and a more vintage look of it's original style than color would have. I love the way older buildings look in B&W and even with a P&S camera one can create interesting photos; something anyone can do, that is, if you are looking to do so. Each photographer has their way of creating images and this is one of the ways I like showing what life looks like in my world.
There are a number of interesting scenes and older buildings in my world that look good in B&W and the old Cumberland Cement and Supply building is just one of them. This, too, is part of my world and as such, you are welcome to it.
