Description A view of the inner corridors at the world famous Santa Barbara Courthouse.The Santa Barbara County Courthouse is located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, California. Designed by William Mooser III. and completed in 1929, the Spanish Colonial Revival style building replaced the smaller Greek Revival courthouse of the same location. It is credited with the creation of the trend celebrating the Spanish architectural influences in the region. Occupying an entire city block in downtown Santa Barbara, the courthouse hosts many events, particularly at the Sunken Garden, site of the 1872 courthouse.The courthouse is composed of four buildings, totaling 150,000 square feet (14,000 m2). The courthouse also contains a Jail Wing; however, the wing is no longer used to hold prisoners. Visitors may take elevators to reach the summit of the 85 ft (26 m) 'El Mirador' clock tower. The clock tower also has labeled photographs that show what the viewer is looking at in all directions.Image is an HDR, compiled of 7 raw images with Photomatix pro 3.1Nikon D70028 mm 2.5 nikon
Eyal Nahmias, Santa Barbara , CA Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement I am a freelance photographer with a passion for travel, nature and underwater photography. I remember getting my first Diana camera at the age of 9, and I've been hooked ever since. I graduated Brooks Institute of Photography in 1988 with a B.A. in photography, majoring in color and commercial photography. For me photography is a way to fully express what I feel and to convey my impressions of the world around me.. I started shooting digital about 3 years ago, so the majority of my work is still in slides and negative and I have a huge task of transferring them to digital formats.. I love to meet new photographers and be inspired by new ideas and approaches. Feel free to give me your input and thoughts.
