I spotted this building as I was crossing the bridge mentioned in my previous posts. I love the period details of this historic building-especially the roof! This building, completed in 1911, was a train station that was later turned into a courthouse. I love the architectural details of this building, especially the fact that the city kept it in tact after the remodel. I believe it’s important to refurbish old buildings whenever possible. Though more expensive than tearing it down and rebuilding, it not only helps preserve history, but also the character of a community. Want to photograph historic buildings? Try checking out the National Register of Historic Places, or your local historic registry, for buildings in your area. No matter where you live, you can find beautiful buildings to photograph!

Tracks to Somewhere
The tracks pictured bisects one of my favorite walking paths. This area has a combination of decommissioned and currently used railroad tracks. I thought this shot of the tracks heading off unto the forest to places unknown was a great photo. In case you were wondering, I didn’t take this picture on the tracks (safety first!). This photo can represent many things: adventure, the past, nature, or a love of trains. The photo could be used as the cover of a photo book or a gift to a train enthusiast. Every community, no matter the size, has railroad tracks. Find an area that has tracks where you can (safely!) take a picture. Each track is different, so you’ll have many miles to find your inspiration!
