The Brandeis Building - Print-a-Day-15

This is number 15 in the series "Print-a-Day for 30 Days."

The Brandeis Building was built in downtown Omaha in1906.  It was the home of a large department store chain  for several decades.  It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in early eighties.  The exterior has been restored and the interior has been converted to condos, office and retail space.

I selected this detail shot for the printing project because of the shadow over the window, the details in the window blinds and stone work, and the reflections of the much newer building in the window.

This photo certainly is no work of art, but it does record a different form of art that we don't see in modern buildings.
