An Unusual Street Address

An Unusual Address

I was looking through my shots from the Worldwide Photowalk in Cazenovia and came across this shot of a doorway on Albany St. that really caught my eye.

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an actual address like this and thought it was interesting enough to snap a few. I know it’s not much but I thought the simplicity of it makes it work as a black and white. I also think that it captures a little bit of what I appreciate most from taking the time to intentionally be out there shooting and that is the small, and often unnoticed details of the world around us.

So next time you’re out shooting, or even just trying to make it through the day, take a moment and try to look at something you’ve never really paid much attention to before. You never know what you might find!

  • That’s something funny 🙂 Some times we really need to pay attention to unpack those hidden treasures out there !

  • There’s actually a number of “1/2” street addresses around my area. Often it’ll be an older (fairly large) home that is converted into apartments, perhaps for two families. One gets the original address, and the other the 1/2 address. You’ll find them more often in older sections of a town.

    Regardless, a fun photograph!

    Tell Kim it’s about time to get into that school frame of mind! (She probably already has.)
