State guesthouse

That's what we think it is, but are not really sure. I saw this down the street from the elementary school in previous pictures, and my husband insisted I had photographed the building. But I would have remembered something like this. It was simply outstanding. The problem with it was the nest of wires blocking most any view. To get most pictures I took of this, I had to stand in the middle of a busy street with my husband warning me of the flow of traffic coming.

I can't even begin to describe how difficult it was to process this picture -- there were three huge wires running through the building with the most obnoxious one in the sky as well. I was just going to leave the less offensive ones, but I like the building so much I hated the way they looked. Anyway, if I've left any traces of wires, well, I think that's the way it has to stay as I never want to go through that again!

A wealth of history here and you did a wonderful job of editing! These gorgeous buildings weren't meant to be obstructed by wires!! :) V~

I think that you did an excellent job with the wires to reveal a very fine building.
