Learning a bit about my new town is a big part of a personal photography project I am undertaking. My plan is to photograph buildings and/or areas in Prescott, a town with a rich and interesting history. I have been taking photos since I moved here, but now I am doing it with the intention of making a collection, eventually a gallery slideshow on my blog.
Yesterday, I chose to photograph the courthouse with a view of the Thumb Butte behind it. I took the photo on a hill (which I’ve read is called Nob Hill) standing just down from the Goldwater House.
I considered Photoshopping the wires out, but decided against it for the sake of authenticity- but may reconsider. There are wires obstructing almost every view in this town- perhaps they add to the character!
And below is the Goldwater House, built by Henry Goldwater (uncle to Barry) in 1894.
Linking up with Friday Finds.
