    I like 1 and 2 the best.


    I wonder when the book store last had business? Gotta love a place called Geezers, lol. They shoulda called it Barns and Shambles.

    i think they could all use a bit o' sharpening and a little hue/saturation work. they look nice, though.

    Great shots! But just a small warning...

    If you are going to be shooting in older buildings like that, make sure you protect yourself. I would bet that most of that pealing paint is lead paint. When the paint peels like that, it causes lead dust which sits in the area, ready to be breathed in. Lead poisoning is not something to look forward to.

    Asbestos is also a concern with old buildings

    Thanks for the interesting comments...I PM'ed you re: my family that lives there, it's my grandparents.

    Thanks for the warning. Yea, I didn't go into any of the buildings, didn't have time, just looked in the windows. Good think to think about though, lead poisoning isn't good...
