Hello, all. My name's Josh, and I figured I'd make one of my first posts a huge one. So, a little background about today's adventure through town. My buddy, Ben, had recently received a Fuji Finepix A345 from his wife as a birthday/Christmas present and wanted to go around taking pictures of older buildings, mainly downtown. Some of my pictures (all of which are taken with an Olympus D-550) are more landscape, but include some nice older buildings. As for editing, I've been using HP Image Zone to adjust saturation, brightness, image size, orientation, and cropping. Image size is anywhere from 1000x750 to 1984x1488, and anywhere from 300KB to 1MB. So, beware if you're on dial-up. This is the reason I'm posting thumbnails. Now that we've got all the formalities taken care of, on to the show.

St. Therese church (in Tower District):

Ben from behind, and a nice house:

Same house as above:

Lisle funeral home, across the street from previous house:

Another shot of Lisle funeral home:

And back to the other side of the street:

Some church a few blocks away:

Same church, other side of steps:

Same church, but from across the street:

The Old Fresno Water Tower, with the Del Webb building in the background:

I kind of wanted to get something old, with something new. Just the nice mix of plenty old and plenty new downtown.

A law office across from Community Hospital:

Same place, different angle:

Yet another angle:

Aaand, yet another angle:

Part of St. John's School, across from St. John's Cathedral:

Some of the steps from St. John's School:

Some more stuff from St. John's School:

And yes, even more:

And, one more:

The Meux Home museum, that looks like it's falling into disrepair:

Now for the newly restored Sante Fe train station:

A different view:

A closer view of the clock tower:

Some light posts outside the station:

Sign on the door facing Tulare Ave.:

And a view of the side facing Tulare Ave.:

Security Bank building from 8th floor of county courthouse:

Guarantee Bank building from same place:

And, that's it. You know, after today, I realized that you get a lot weird looks when photographing funeral homes. Not our fault they used to be the nice mansions at the turn of the century. Also, I would've posted some pictures of St. John's Cathedral, but my camera (along with Ben's) had some problems capturing all of the brickwork from across the street. :sad: Too bad, they would've made nice pictures. Also, I realize that some of the buildings aren't exactly level. What the camera says is level and what my body is telling my hands is level are two different things. Next time we go out, which might be tomorrow, I'm going to correct this problem. I didn't notice it until I got home and had loaded the pictures on the computer. Anywho, any comments and/or questions are welcome, especially comments.

Youve got some lovely buildings in your city. I'm sure you'll get many more photo ops.

Thanks, ladyhawkVA. Unfortunately, most of the nice buildings are downtown or in the Tower District. It'd be nice if there were some historic homes on the north side of town. Again, thanks.
