Visit to The Distillery District

One of the best things about having a guest from overseas is that it gives you the chance to show off interesting bits of the city that they might not have known enough to explore themselves. It’s also a great excuse to go to see places that you like but need an excuse to go to. So Carla Schengili was my perfect excuse to head to The Distillery District today, while taking Vanessa along for the ride as well.

The place is practically made for photography, so here are some of my favourite shots I took while there:

This picture of some old magnifying glasses in an antique shop didn’t come off as well as I had hoped — ideally I’d want them in sharp focus as well, but the picture is still interesting, but not what I hoped for.

Carla got what I think is a far better shot of the Martian sculpture (which apparently is officially called “I.T.” and is made by sculptor Michael Christian) where the blazing sun is in the background of a shot similar to this. Still, I like this result, but her’s was better.

I look at this and can’t help but think of a new Cylon face. Possible inspiration?
