Raleigh at Dusk.
City Market had an English Pub and Brewery called Greenshields, but that was about it. Eventually Moore square and the rest of City Market filled in with more upscale and trendy establishments.
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.
