There are a lot of places around town that are great photo subjects for black and white. I especially love the older buildings and neglected areas.
I think capturing them in black and white evokes some sort of nostalgic feel, even though these places are "contemporary".
|The old County Commissioner's office in Mission, Texas. The office moved to a newer building out of town some years back. The old building remains vacant.|
|An old Head Start central kitchen. The county Head Start schools do not have kitchens, they have their food delivered. Hidalgo County Head Start has since then centralized their kitchen.|
|Bench outside the old County Commissioner's building. It offers seating to visitors who no longer come.|
|Painted-on handicap parking sign on the wall.|
|Stone angel in a church garden.|
|Old gas pump near the ruins of a burned down building.|
