More Van Buren

As promised, here are some more pictures from that one ittybitty town.

The building architecture was so satisfying; a bit of the old midwest. I'm glad they preserved it.

I'm curious what these initials stand for. (Notice the freemasonry symbols.)

 Train depot where you can catch a ride on an excursion train.

I just love urban grunge walls. Funny how what used to be a run-down eyesore is now considered art. Like I always say, "it's all perception."

And here is where I had to manipulate the photos in the current trend of high-contrast, darkly vibrant, textured look. Why 'had to'? Because they're perfect for that style. I wonder how much longer this trend will be trendy?

This door would make a fantastic portrait backdrop!

I can get a lot of photo-op-mileage out of one street, haha!

Great shots !!!! If I ever get motivated I may need to beg you to let me use the door and window photos for an old machine/repair shop I want to build for a friends train layout. Would be pretty near perfect !
