Buildings: Go Monochrome Day 2 (FMTSO)

      Today's project for Go Mono was "Buildings." I've always liked HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos because they bring out the highlights and the shadows very well. I went to the old county town hall this morning and got this shot.

       I really like it, and I got a few more (not for the project though):



It was locked but through the window we could see
some old school chairs and blackboards
as well as rather new voting booths:)
I like the reflection, too.




(2013 edit: I am linking to FMTSO because I'm snowed in and decided to use these lovely pics instead:) I did some research and found that this town hall was used in the 1920's and 30's. I am not sure when it was built though, so a mystery!)







S'all for now!
Later, Flashed!

I like the roof over the side porch. Great photos.

Great shots. I really like the shot through the windows with the ghostly contents (I wouldn't have noticed the polling booth) and the reflections.
