My son is taking a photography class in high school and his latest assignment was architecture. While that type of photography isn’t my normal thing, I was looking forward to us taking a trip to downtown Denver and me giving my hand at it for the first time in years.
We mapped out about a dozen locations and were having so much fun and taking our time we only got to about half of those. This particular building got the bulk of my attention – the Byron White U.S. Courthouse.
The three-story high columns made of Colorado marble that line the front of the building along with the classic light fixtures were absolutely compelling. Converting the image to black and white, in my opinion, really helps to ‘make’ this image. Construction of the building was completed 99 years ago and it is one of the most beautiful structures in the Mile High City.
