brick tour :: city photography

i love an old brick building.   they are intriguing even when run-down and grown-over.  their colors are rich and rustic and i imagine the stories that have been created inside of them.  they have history and hold their place in a city like a controversial political character... loved and hated by so many.  they are beautifully fascinating.

p.s.  i have been playing with a new lens.  the photos seem to take on a life of their own when i use it.  what do you think?


  1. I love old brick buildings too - they are so interesting to take photos of.
    I like the effect on the first image. It feels distracting on the other three.
    Is your new lens a Lensbaby?

    1. yes, it is a lensbaby. the spark. i think it's fun for artsy stuff, but i still have lots of practicing to do! not sure if i could ever use it on a "person" photo shoot...
