So - going with a theme I now explain one of the most popular buildings in Rochester, the Powers bldg. It is at the corner of State and Main. And it was built in fits and starts. What does that mean? Well, the owner first had it built up to 4 floors. Then, one of his rivals built a building across the street from him that was taller. So, what does he do? He hires a new architect and adds 3 more floors. S, his rival made his taller. So, he added the tower - then more to it then the flag pole and with that he won. Because it was built this way the styles from floor to floor changed and made for a strange mash but one beautiful bldg.
I decided to go with the look of an old photo with this pen and ink above. and gain I followed the same formula that has worked for me so well. First, I took my own photo.
This gave me the dramatic angle I needed. Looking at this photo I may redo the pen and ink to also be in color. When I do I will post it here. Next I went online to find images to get the details I needed. I didn't have to look far for this one. It is a popular bldg and there were many images of it. In the end I used this one below to get the details.
