Rickdeloris Candy & Popcorn Company Building in Jerome, Arizona
I took this photo on a very cold day in January 2007 on my first visit to Jerome, Arizona, an old mining town in the Verde Valley - actually the town sits on a hill. Jerome is now mainly a tourist attraction and home for artists and crafters, and there are many interesting shops. Lots of interesting history here too!
In this rendering I used my Fractalius Photoshop filter to create a painting like effect from the original photo...hope you like it :-)
INFORMATION ON JEROME:
Few towns anywhere in Arizona make more of an impression on visitors than Jerome, a historic mining town that clings to the slopes of Cleopatra Hill high on Mingus Mountain. The town is divided into two sections that are separated by an elevation change of 1,500 vertical feet, with the upper part of town 2,000 feet above the Verde Valley. On a clear day, the view from Jerome is stupendous -- it's possible to see for more than 50 miles, with the red rocks of Sedona, the Mogollon Rim, and the San Francisco Peaks visible in the distance. Add to the unforgettable views the abundance of interesting shops and galleries and the winding narrow streets, and you have a town that should not be missed.
