The Osborn Block (front) and the Twohy (rear) at sunset. In the distance, you can almost make out Globe Elevators. One of my favorite photos of 2013.
The Brown Hotel still stands, but has recently gone out of business again. One of the nice things about historic buildings in New Mexico, though, is things tend to stay around a lot longer than if they were subjected to lots of rain and snow. It will probably be reopened eventually.

One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
The southernmost houses in Gilman are seen through the pines on the right, near the tram stop.
