The Windsor Hotel: Atrium

Received permission to get into a 120 year old hotel that sits on Main Street where I live.  Kind of a cool building that means a lot to quite a few people around Garden City.  For many years they have been trying to find the funding to restore the hotel to it’s former glory.  The first from this series (hopefully) is a shot of the four story atrium that is at the center of the hotel.  I was only able to shoot for about 1.5 hours this morning due to other obligations, but I hope to get back and shoot some more soon.
The hopefully reference from before is due to the fact that my laptop crashed yesterday evening about 11pm and I was up until around 3am just trying to get it to boot to the login-in screen.  I could care less about the laptop but we’ve got a lot of pictures and videos of the boys on there that we have not transferred to the external HD yet, so I’m in recovery mode to see if I can salvage the files.  Not the way I was wanting to start the week, but we’ll see what we get.

  4. Awesome shot Scott! Nice work keeping all the lines straight with the perspective. Sorry to hear about the laptop. I had a complete HDD failure the week after transferring ALL my pics to my new system (phew)… Online backup is really cheap these days. I use Backblaze for under $5 a month…

  6. Wow, that’s really pretty the way the stair cases line up at the other end. I assume the stairs are on both ends, or you were stretching to get that middle-of-the-area shot.

    Nice.

  7. Great image Scott. Hopefully perhaps a little photography attention for this place will help people to see that it would be nice to restore it. Very nicely done. I hope you get your files recovered!
