This photo, entitled “downtown reno” in manybits‘s Flickr stream, caught my eye for a few reasons. First, the recent trend of everything old is new again resonates with me. I have a lot of fun with some of the applications on my phone–taking pictures and tweaking them to make them look aged. Second, I like, for whatever reason, shots looking up at stark architecture. Maybe that’s because we only have they typical view from that angle. Whatever it is, I like it.
