Ten years ago, I never felt that comfortable walking around downtown at night. Today, it has a whole different feel. I've been out shooting for a client recently that is wanting huge canvas prints of downtown. As I walk around after dark, I am rarely by myself. There is plenty of activity even during the week. It's been fun getting reacquainted with Raleigh night life...and have made a few nice images at the same time. Of course not all these are from downtown. I have included the James Hunt Library as well. The last image though is a reminder that although Raleigh is a vibrant community, there are still the homeless and less advantaged that reside just off the main drag. I'm thankful to this day that I am not homeless and have a passion for my work that keeps me clothed and fed... maybe not enough for a penthouse apartment, but a home with a roof none the less.
