Photo Tips

Bring a tripod, a wide angle and a zoom lens.  You’ll want to get in as much of the building as you can, but may also want to use a zoom to photograph the many interesting embellishments and details of the building.  Make sure you look right across the street for the next interesting building to photograph - The Veteran’s Memorial Building
