We drove up to Salida to eat dinner last night, while driving around the block looking for a place to park I noticed this old, rundown rooming house. It looked so sad and pathetic I took a picture for grain. I think the graininess adds to the look of sad desolation of this place.

Just got back from a meeting in Omaha. I really like this shot. Just enought grain to add interest and not too distract the shot. Hope all is well with you and Jack.

Yes. The grain belongs here. This looks urban, old timey and very appealing. I love it very much!

Hmmm. My entry is similar to this one. You went darker and grainier I think. I like it.

I like the perspective. The roundness of the clock helps add a curve to the otherwise geometric sense of it. The purple of the neon is a nice touch too.
