Don't fret, it's just Charles Ford's photography blog.

The Flatiron Building




No, not THAT Flatiron Building.   This is the one in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.   The original was built in 1880 and burned down in 1890.   A replacement was built in 1890 and also burned down.   The one there now was built in 1987.   At least the site is historic.   To me, it looks like a locomotive surging down the street with building in tow.   The building houses a hotel (“The Flatiron Flats” of course), and some shops.    I’ve photographed it before but finally got something I am somewhat pleased with.

  1. This is a “WOW” shot for sure, Charles. It’s a great piece of architecture and the shot is amazing. The choice of selective color was perfect.
    My father had a Foth Derby camera in which the film advance and shutter cocking were separate operations, so there was always a possibility for unintentional multiple exposures. I have a twin lens reflex, a Yashica D, where you can do the same. It still works fine if you can find 2 1/4 film anymore.

  2. Great shot. Looks like a great place for a scary movie to be filmed.
