I found a spot where someone had removed the tarp that was blocking the view through most of the fence while J took off around the corner to try to find a better view. I love the way this came out! The workers have torn down several early 20th century brick buildings to make way for a new market building, but happily they've left some of the original walls standing. I assume these will be incorporated into the new structure. Drawing this felt like drawing rooflines outside our apartment window in Barcelona. An interesting touch was that a bagpipe was playing in the background while I was drawing, probably connected to the Highland Brewing booth at the beer fest. We aren't Beer City for nothing!
After a while I texted J and we met up around the corner. He had climbed a fire escape and looked down and found what looked like an interesting photography gallery (Castell Photography); so we went to take a closer look. Inside, along with the really good exhibition, there were old cameras and photography things. I sketched this large format wooden camera while J tried out a stereopticon, We enjoyed the exhibit and recommend this gallery. Be sure to check out Jacob's blog to see his images from today.
