This morning I headed out for an urban trek to work (only appropriate for Earth Day) armed with my boots and my Canon G10.

I knew I wanted to capture the old Marion Hotel Building. It’s been boarded up for decades but is beaming with character and potential. It’s easy to fantasize about restoring it into something beautiful but the reality of it is not likely. One of my architect-industry friends told me that it needs an entirely new interior structure in order to support a new roof and it’s just a complicated mess.

Boarded up windows and all, it’s gorgeous, right?
