When coming upon this building I knew I wanted to photograph it but wasn’t sure exactly how. I seen as others walked by snapping shots of it then moving on. I couldn’t help but wonder how close each of their shots would resemble one another and couldn’t think of a unique perspective so I just passed it by knowing I would pass it again on the way back through. Once I made my way to it again I decided to take a walk around to see if I could find a way to capture it from a different angle. As I made a full circle around the building I took notice of this old flag pole and the rope quickly caught my attention. I took a landscape oriented shot at first but noticed how I didn’t like the top of the flag pole getting cut off so turned my camera to portrait orientation and captured it how I wanted it. While the building may not be the main subject in this photo, I did achieve my goal. I was able to create a photo that is possibly unique and most definitely different than the photos the other photographers took during this photo walk.
