Welcome to my blog. I mean my Tumblr. My Tumblr blog. You know what I mean. Anyhow, this is the place for all the latest William Anthony Photography news as well as things that inspire, humor or in some cases, annoy me. See my portfolio here.
This view, from the West looking eastward, of our building The Crane Lofts, will soon be a thing of the past. On the lot where I stood to take this photo, a 9-story office building has just broken ground. I don’t lament progress, or downtown re-development, especially here in the Pearl District (an *almost* completely fabricated community that rose from industrial train yards; barring these old buildings, of course). My heart just aches knowing the gorgeous sunset light will never again grace this masonry or the original, single-pane windows. I suppose it’s just more justification for the art of photography. Again, the camera, and this photo, will serve as a time machine for someone in the future.
