I live near Martinsville, Virginia. Hard hit by the recession, but more so by the rapid decline in the US textile and furniture industries. Martinsville and Henry County are, for example, home to Bassett, Stanley and Hooker furniture. Once, this area was the economic engine for the Commonwealth of Virginia. So, when the decision was made to locate the Virginia Museum of Natural History here, we were elated. This is the main entrance to the beautiful facility, and it’s right in the heart of Martinsville. The photo is a five-shot HDR image, recently taken with my Nikon D300, and processed through Photomatix Pro. Brings out the “edges” and colors of the materials used in construction.
