An Evening Downtown

I went downtown in Winston-Salem on a Friday night to take photos. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but I was really pleased with my results. I hope the photos below take you back to the 1920s.

I saw this cool mural. I didn’t know what it was until I googled it later. The mural depicts a history of the Black press in America, with abolitionist Frederick Douglass as the central figure. The artist is Marianne DiNapoli-Mylet and the key quote says “Too long have others spoken for us. Too long has the public been deceived by misrepresentation.”

I was close to being done, walking back to the car when I saw these shining golden windows a couple blocks away. I knew I had to get closer. I had seen this building many times before but never at this time of day.

Last but not least is a photo of ARTivity on the Green, a park on Liberty Street. They have really interesting architectural features. Since line was the prevalent factor in this image, I decided to make it black and white.
