Texas Courthouses

Might need a separate forum just to cover courthouses but I wanted to share a few of the ones I've captured recently. Let's see how they hold up when I compress them enough to fit on here.

First one:  Bosque County Courthouse in Meridian. On a lark, on a whim, on one trip down to the Hill Country a few years ago I decided to adjust my usual route and with about ten minutes added to the drive I was rewarded with different views than I'm used to, and that courthouse stuck in my head until I had a chance to get by there again to get some photos and video.

Second One:   the Wise County Courthouse in Decatur, it sits high up on the hill and offers some great views from a distance.

This third one is the old Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square, it's a museum now and has such a great look to it.

This last one is the Llano County Courthouse in....Llano. I use 281 a lot when traveling north and south but 16 absolutely has its benefits.

Holy smokes! Gorgeous! The sky on that first one really makes it.

It would be awesome --- especially for future generations 100 years from now ---- if you could label them like "Lee County Courthouse in Giddings, Texas:" or whatever.  Remember, we're doing this for posterity!

Fair point! I'm always so convinced I'm just shouting into the void, I don't tend to think it's important to get into specifics.

 

For those browsing through and curious, the first image is the Bosque County Courthouse in Meridian.

Third is the old Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square, it's a museum now and has such a great look to it.

Fourth is the Llano County Courthouse in....Llano. I use 281 a lot when traveling north and south but 16 absolutely has its benefits.

I think your Edit Window has gone by so I'll just edit it for you. I'll also leave our conversation here so that folks can kind of get the hang of it.

I will guarantee you that within a year you'll KNOW you're not shouting into the void.  😀

This isn't one of the most photogenic structures itself, but I like the hills in the background. I didn't spend a ton of time framing a shot here, I just grabbed this while enjoying some tasty wine. This is the Burnet County Courthouse in January 2022. I need to stop in again during spring or summer and see if I can get a nice image or two.
