Asheville City Hall, Courthouse, and Splasheville

Autumn is about to arrive here in Asheville, NC so here is another round of photos in Pack Square Park before the weather changes. I am spotlighting Asheville City Hall, the Courthouse, and our water fountain “Splasheville” in this post. I’ve taken photos of these landmarks before, but it’s intriguing to me how the lighting and sky color is so changing from day to day. Mix that in with the mood I am in, what inspires me that day, and what lenses or filters I feel like utilizing and the end result differs each time. In general I think that’s a good recipe for what makes photographers and images stand apart from one another. Technical aspects such as composition, exposure and aperture come in to play too (not to mention post-processing and the infinite possibilities one can arrive at), but the most important part of photography for me is the passion and drive to always learn. If I didn’t have it, well, hopefully someone would slap me and tell me to stop.

I digress… on to the photos.
