Awesome Architecture

Building StarFor some reason, I wasn’t overly thrilled with any of the pics I took today, but yet I had a hard time picking from three of them.  How’s that work?  Two were more artsy fartsy, this one included in that category.  The other a much more literal interpretation.  Anyway, I love these old building stars, and I love all the old murals that still at least partially remain on a lot of the old buildings downtown.  This particular one has captivated my attention more than once.  I’ve photographed it several times, from several different angles.  This one is much more zoomed and cropped even beyond that, but I like all the texture in it.  I played with it quite a bit and bumped up the saturation to bring the colors out and a little HDR to bring the textures out even more.  ok, I’m feeling like breaking the rules, so here’s a shot of the old post office downtown….also in HDR cause I just can’t stop!  haha!!
