Texas School Book Depository - Sunday Night

I took this photo about 8:30 on Sunday night. It's funny, but I googled images of this building and didn't find a single one that was taken at night. Of course, this is the building where Lee Harvey was working and from which he shot someone once.

That night was great because there were these little white clouds that looked like brocade backgrounds on the longer exposure.

You're right....I don't ever recall seeing a night shot of this building either. Pretty cool effect, and those clouds are nice!

Another one that probably just wouldn't look right in color. When I think of this building, I remember a time when most news photos were in b&w. Good job, phlegmmy.

chris & deb - thanks so much! It's nice to give a slightly different perspective on an oft-referenced structure from my town

myron - yup, I do think it's better in B&W. Yeah, I feel wistful for the newspapers that were all B&W. Those were the days!

john - Thanks! one of these days I'll start carrying a tripod around with me - I don't have the steadiest hand for long exposures, but I'm glad you like it. :)

Ever gone through the museum up there? It's pretty moving.

It looks almost eery (sp?)/spooky at night, and so deserted. Is it used for anything any more?

This actually make a decent picture in black and white at night. Nice work.

Merry Christmas!

Amazing shot! Ironically, my grandmother was a music teacher in Fort Worth for many years, and Lee Harvey Oswald was one of her students. I also remember constructing this building with red clay for an art project in junior high. Good memories! Happy New Year from Houston Daily Photo
