The Weekend in Black and White: Cone Manor and Carriage House


I played around with different angles when shooting the Moses H. Cone Manor in Blowing Rock, NC on Tuesday.

The first two shots were taken on the same side.

I took the next shot on the other side.

Then I took a full front view shot.

To tell you the truth, given the choice, I'd just as soon live in the Cone Carriage House. The shot below is a back view of the Carriage House.

The balcony details add so much character to this grand home! It rally is impressive! But the carriage house is indeed more "homey"!

house of the rich and famous. I wonder how many maids and grounds men they needed to keep it at such pristine condition.

Black and white works really well for these buildings.

Well yes -- I'd pick the second house too. (But I live in an RV, so you know I'm not a large house person ;>) Great shots!
