Rusty and Peeling Iron Scroll Work

I few years ago I was working in Hillsboro, Texas. On my last day in town, I did a little exploring in downtown Decatur, Texas. One of the places I found and explored was the Old Stone Prison in downtown.

Instead of posting an exterior shot of the old building or a shot of the interior, I decided to post an abstract taken from the front porch.

This type of decorative iron scroll work isn’t found on modern houses and buildings. This type of work is seen on buildings from the 1940s and 1950s. You can also find them on earlier buildings as well. But I believe that it’s not as common.

For more information and pictures of the old Stone Prison, check out my article on the personal blog.

About the Image

The image was shot by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8. I then edited the image in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the image. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image.
