Historic Building 01

Pick a historic building and photograph it over and over again. Walk around it, walk through it. Observe it how the light change it during the course of a day. How does the building look during rain or in plain sunshine. You will always discover new images in an older home. As always don’t forget to have fun with this challenge.


I picked the John Muir home in Martinez, CA. This house is now a National Historic Site and therefor part of the US National Parks System. You can read about the history of this home by clicking on their website at http://www.nps.gov/jomu/index.htm.

I believe the two palm tree were young when the Muir family lived here. I converted the image to black and white and added some noise to it.

Happy photographing!
