Something Old, Something New

This is a picture of the new administration building at Walla Walla University. Though it was finished just last year, it was modeled after the original administration building which opened when the school did in 1892. It's an attractive building, and it's an eye-catcher as you drive through College Place. The three pillars (one of them pictured) on the front portico are unique to the campus, and the bell tower on the fourth floor is the only one in College Place. It's too bad the sky was washed out in this photo - a beautiful blue sky would've made this shot better, I think.

I think it is great when planners incorporate old style with new construction. This building looks like it as been there a while -- nice! I like your choice of perspective, too. Interesting shot.

It's still a nice shot though, even with the sky a bit bleached out. Maybe if you'd focussed a bit lower down and then raised the camera to take the picture? I don't know - I'm no expert. It's a great perspective though, I like it a lot.

It would be interesting to be in a building that is higher and look down or at the same level as this building.
