Saint Paul Hotel

{1/52} Saint Paul Hotel

Old buildings are great subjects … especially for black and white. The Saint Paul Hotel is no exception. (The lighter building on the left is the Lowry.)

I know the sky is pretty blown out here, but I love how the lines of the buildings move the eye through the image.

  1. Love it! And I love the blown out sky anyway. I think gray skies can be a little distracting in BW sometimes. I did my final photography thesis project on industrialism in St. Paul when I was in college! I could sit in Rice Park and take photos all day.

  2. Thank you, Nathalie. Rice Park has a lot of beautiful views, doesn’t it? And I would love to see your thesis project someday.

    The final photos are hanging in the guest bedroom at my parent’s house (major points to my mother for hanging 24 gritty factory photos in her house with a smile on her face!). I sadly have all of my negatives filed away in negative boxes.. somewhere. Someday I will have to find a negative scanner and put them in a book.

  4. Then I’ll be able to see them soon. I talked to your mom the other night, and we’re planning to get together soon.

    I hope to get my negatives scanned soon. I think I’ll use

    I just checked out It looks awesome.. and unless negative scanners have come a long way in the last 5 years I know the last thing I want to do is scan them myself. I wonder why it is $0.69 for B&W 35mm negs per frame and only $0.29 for color 35mm.. either way it’s worth it. And then do you still keep the negatives? I know I should eventually get rid of them but I can’t help dreaming of one day being back in the darkroom!

  6. B&W is so much more expensive because those negatives are more fragile, and they do a lot of corrections by hand. They do send the negatives back. The shipping is included in the per-image price.
