This is the third and final Art-ish image from this Taylor series. The amazing thing is that between the first photo, second photo, and this photo, only 10 minutes had elapsed. It tells you how quickly the light changes after sunset. Peak sunset color only lasts for a minute and the magical blue hour for urban landscapes last less than ten in Central Texas. These quick changes to light and color are something I only realized after I started photography.
The large brown building was fully renovated about a year ago. The Texas Beer Company that I’ve visited a couple of times is located on the ground floor, as well as a few other stores. I didn’t know that there are offices and residential lofts on the second and third floors. I met someone who lives there. I always think of loft living in SoHo in New York City, but Taylor? I bet it’s a wee bit more affordable.
The loft resident told me that two other buildings are being renovated nearby, with additional residential units. Included is my favorite building, the red one that you see in the distance. It’s wonderful to hear that the old buildings in downtown Taylor are getting a second life. Perhaps in a decade, the place will be bustling and unrecognizable.
