Raleigh in September 2006

October 3rd, 2006

September in Downtown Raleigh was a month of measurable progress on the construction front. Cranes began popping up as a sign that the quest for a changing skyline has begun. The early days of Fall have ushered in cooler weather and clearer air. We also managed a visit the state capitol for a few photos from the inside. Be sure to leave a comment!

    Matt,

    You have outdone yourself!!! This is an excellent collection of recent photos and I certainly appreciate the work you have put behind them. Lots of interesting angles and good use of your wide angle lens(es). By the way, your website looks great!!! I look forward to more of your work.

    Ernest

    In “Bagwell Plaza” and “Sunrise and Church Steeple” I was struck by the level of detail in the distant treelines. Just uncommon to see that.

    When you said they dont make them like they used to, AMEN. I really wish they still built like that, glass is so overrated

    I am moving to Raleigh soon from the west coast and have been looking at your pictures for the past few months… I LOVE THEM! I feel like I already know what the city is like, now I can’t wait to come out and see for myself!

    The rising sun and the church steeple was a very nice picture, I mean they all are. That one was my favorite.
