Downtown Raleigh Winter Rainbow – January 7, 2009

January 7th, 2009

I’ve been editing pictures from my recent trip to Pittsburgh the past two days, trying to think when I could get back to focusing on Raleigh. A winter rainbow forced me to rush out and set up with only seconds to spare. I almost missed capturing this photograph because of the only traffic light between me and this view. Within seconds the rainbow faded, but I managed to get one shot near its peak; a decent start to 2009 Raleigh photos.

    Those pictures are amazing, &nd I think people should comment on whaat the pictures look like not having a conversation, that’s why they invented E-Mail, phones, texting, ect.
    But anyways, those two photographs are absolutely stunning,
    &nd I hope your career is going well!

    Lexi, I think you shouldn’t make 5 comments in a row. See, it doesn’t feel nice to have people criticize the way you comment.

    You are correct about the new City Hall, although it is a long-term goal. Some renderings were released that included the entire municipal complex. Feel free to send me an email and I will send you some renderings. Don’t expect anything in the next 5-6 years, though.
