First Baptist Church of Asheville, NC. Stop #1 on the Architecture Trail. Took several traditional images then switched over to a bellow lens to experiment with selective focus.

81 Broadway Street in Asheville, NC. The straight lines and elevation change in the City caught my attention. Selective focus bellow lens to draw your eye to the curb service mural.

Another reshoot on the Asheville Urban Trail (#14) in 2021. The shopping daze metal installation celebrates an era when Haywood Street was the center of shopping. The stores that comprise the current downtown are energetic and eclectic. Located right in front of Malaprops Bookstore at 55 Haywood.
Reshot Stop #6 in 2021 on the Asheville Urban Trail. Elizabeth Blackwell was an Asheville resident and first female in the country to earn a medical degree.
