Architecture and Monochrome – Photography 101

During a break in the rain, I was able to get out and take some photos of historic downtown Albany, Oregon. I don’t know if I like the looking-up shots, but the details on the tops of the buildings are very nice in person. I tried to capture that. I don’t know how successful I was.

3 – Old building with reflection. I wish I would have waited for the car to pass. I would have had a longer sidewalk view.

10 – Another view of #3 with daffodils in the foreground

I found it very hard to take architectural photos without getting a lot of peripheral garbage like power lines and signage. Any pointers?
