One of the things that fascinate me about old buildings are the various textures they feature.
This building is in Roma, Texas, is well over a 100 years old.
Believe it or not, it’s still in use. The building will be featured in its entirety in an upcoming post.
Just look at the way the bricks and the old boards in the doors and windows have weathered. From a photographic standpoint the objective is to make it possible for the viewer to experience the various textures just by looking at the photograph. Light plays a huge roll in this. This day was perfect to highlight the roughness of the brick and wood. It was a Thanksgiving weekend, and this particular day was incredibly clear, not a hint of haze. The sky was a dark blue and the sun was as sharp as a laser. The sun was high in the sky, casting harsh shadows. It was the perfect light for photographing this kind of surface.
