A few pics of downtown Raleigh, NC

So, I figure for my first post on this awesome board, I should post a few pics of the big town near me, Raleigh, NC. I just have a couple that I quickly snapped. I was going to take some more, but my batteries were about dead. Hope you enjoy!


RBC building is the one with the spire. the building to the left is the juvenile jail, i think.


This is the BB&T building. I'm not sure of the official name.


A better picture of the RBC building. I love how this one looks.


RBC building again and the Sheraton hotel.


Marriot hotel.

Hopefully in the next few days, I can update this with some more pictures from around raleigh. I'll look through my photobucket and see if I have any different ones. Also, I hope this is the right area to post. I kinda guessed. haha

I really like it. I wish we had more big buildings, but at the same time, all the old houses and random buildings are awesome, too.


Here are some more pictures of things around Raleigh.








St. Agnes Hospital. Everything but the stone walls burned sometime in the 70s, I think. It was kinda creepy driving up the road and just seeing this here.





This house is awesome to me. Its crazy, because you'll have all these new apartment/condo buildings, new houses, etc, and then out of nowhere, you'll see a big, old, awesome house like this one.


gotta put a picture of my car on there. haha

I found some of my old 35mm pictures, too.


This is probably my favorite thing in Raleigh. I'm not too sure why I think its so awesome, but I can't help but love this old sign. I really wish the picture wasn't halfway covered like it is.


This is the Capitol building.. I was on Fayetteville street when I took this picture.





This is the Dorton Arena on the Raleigh Fairgrounds.



I've got the next couple days off. I scoped out some cool places to take pictures at, so I'm pretty excited about that. If its cool, i'm just going to keep updating this thread with Raleigh and Raleigh area pictures.

My favorite building in Raleigh. The Clarion Hotel. I've never been it, but every time I drive by it, I can't help but stare at it. So funky looking
