Odd how the sepia gives it such a cold look .. I was sure the sunlight was snow .. wait.. is it snow?

James said...

That looks like something right out of a history book.

Oh first I thought I had come to Rome but with a closer look I think it is at Theatre :)
What ballet is on?
It looks very good in sepia!

cool editing

Vita Stunder said...

Beautiful even in Sepia, it is the same shot you posted for Photohunt but in another set of colouring, right?

Hey Mojo, is this a government building? If it is, you're right that there's no business like it...and that's a VERY good thing!

Mojo said...

@Vita: Not the same shot, but the same shoot. I took those at the same time, just shot this one in sepia and the other in color. Didn't realize I had them scheduled so close together.

@EG: No, it's a theatre, Memorial Auditorium at the Progress Energy Center for Performing Arts. This is the original building dating back to the 30's and over the last 15 years or so a whole complex has sprung up around it. No business like show business! And yeah... good thing businesses aren't run like governments.

Sepia may be something to look old, like this. Good Choise!

A classic ancient look, Athens appearing in the RDU area. The pillars and alabaster siding gives the arts a place to shine, and a classy place for the patrons...

I remember this shot from entertainment :P

So am I getting a date there if I'm ever near the vicinity?

Patti said...

I'm hearing Ethel Merman's voice booming : "There's no business like show business..."

I knew right away what you meant.

This is a cool building. Perfect photo for sepia-fying.

Following on your comment...I thought government was show business.

When I am confused, I have the comfort of great photos!
