Historic Prescott

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.

27Feb2014-2941I 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. 27Feb2014-2951

Linking up with Friday Finds.

  2. How grand that you are now just an hour from me, we really should met up and even if it is just for coffee and a tour around town. I love going to downtown Prescott. Such a lovely little downtown area. You have captured the area beautifully, can’t wait to see more of this from you.

  4. Impressive shots and even more impressive is your plan to create a Prescott Collection. Excellent idea! And I think you’re right about the wires. If it were just one, then m aybe get rid of it but with so many and telephone poles as well, they’re and integral part of the scene.
