The Lafayette Hotel & Coffee Shop. Four floors of rooms magically crammed into the space of 2 1/2. Home to many of Easton, PA's less fortunate residents. Jazz next door two nights a month.

3 image panorama, though it wasn't planned as such. Each image was meant to stand on its own but when perspective corrected it lost lower edge detail, but I had managed not to move down the street too far on each shot so after perspective correction they stitched fairly well.

Was unsure about how much of the bar to crop as I couldn't decide whether it added to or distracted from the hotel. From the comments I'm glad I left it in.

Nicely assembled image, Jake.

Congratulations on the HM, Jake. Simple & direct, including the bar adds the possibility of more dimensions in each story. So I'm glad you left it in.

Congratulations Jake, it is a beauty. I also think your alternative crop would have worked just as well. There is a lot
to look at it and it's beautifully presented.

Congrats on the HM, Jake. Well seen, especially with the jazz windows next door, with plenty of urban flavor. I agree with comments that the title works well, too.

The more I look the more I find, the more I like it. Black and white is a good choice.
