Sepia Scenes #39: Governor's Mansion - The Wider View


"Victorian or Not? You Decide"
Raleigh, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sepia Scenes - Brought to you by Mary the Teach
This is roughly the same view of the Executive Mansion you saw a few weeks ago, but with a wider angle of view. It's not as easy to see in this shot, but the holiday decorations not so readily visible were in part designed and executed by our very own Kenju of Violence UnSilenced

Lovley tones in Sepia!

But this place gives me some sort of 'rollercoster'-feeling.
Not in a funny way..

Feels very ghostly. Love these old houses in sepia. Very moody.

In my minds eye,just out of camera view,I see a horse and carriage with a man in top hat and tails and a woman in evening gown and pearls. The man has a monacle.
I can hear the clippity-clop of the horses hooves on the cobblestone streets.

This is a look of mystery, the sepia giving a faint glow of this estate. I see an old English manor, just awaiting a visit by Sherlock Holmes. A classic!

I really can't tell if it's Victorian design or not, but whatever design it is. A Governor's mansion.........must be GRAND!!
