Welcome to Americana
Where I work is a weird little slice of the world with with million dollar homes, mega buildings, subways systems, and so on mixed in with quaint little neighborhoods. So seeing how I hadn’t been on a photo walk in a while and have neglected my Lecia 25mm (50mm equivalent) it was time to hit the streets, plus it was an excuse for skipping the gym that morning. I meandered my way down the streets and just shot what struck my fancy. I drive past this house every day getting to work so I stopped and shot it. I know from the picture it looks a little “off” but its not at all. Its my inner editor at work. If I had to guestimate a dollar amount on it its worth about $500,000 with it easily going for $600,000. I took it black and white and while I am not a fan of selective color I left the shutters their original color and bumped the color on the flag but its in the shadows. I like it and thats all that matters. Enjoy!
