Constructing a new federal courthouse


A new federal courthouse has been under construction for some time in Ocala. These workmen are actually several stories high and appear to be getting some instruction from their superiors.

That is a grand shot, Jacob. Monochrome is perfect for this.

I like the linear feel and the black & white is perfect. I like seeing the bare bones of a building during construction.

May be they are on strike, LOL

Were you at the building across the road so you could get such a close up photo?

Cheers,

Ann

I post that Alpine photo for you last evening.

A very graphic photo, black and white is very successful

un beau choix avec le b&w, cela fait une belle photo très graphique.

How many levels of court would you have represented, locally?

In our system there are some 50 district courts, six courts of appeal and one supreme court. Since Stockholm is a capital city, we've got all levels here of course.

That's a very cool shot, the b&w serves it extremely well. The Feds have $...

Great shot, I am wondering where were you 'placed' to get this level view.

Lois said...

This is a good shot for black and white. I remember when they were building the federal court house here and it seemed like it took forever.

Nice photo. I love the lines. And the B&W is perfect!

Jacob said...

Thanks all! The courthouse is down in a valley and we were up in a parking lot on a hill...that's how I got the shot.

Christopher Raun Leth said...

A very nice shot. Both the lines and the B&W works well.

Cezar and Léia said...

well...different from those guys in Cedar Key, investors in Ocala are not bankrupt!
Great shot!

Very nice photo, Jacob! And it's great in B&W.

The choice of B&W is perfect.

Love this photo as a antipode to your other pictures. It shows me the wide range of your creative ability, Jacob.
