Photohunters: Local Streets and Texture

This is another week where I found it easy to combine the two separate photohunt themes.
The local streets in the downtown area of my city (Raleigh, NC, U.S.) have so many different textures.
The buildings cover a number of different centuries and many different decades.
The paving materials for some of the streets and sidewalks have different textures.
The buildings use different materials each with their own texture.
The photos I'm using are from different seasons and were taken over the past several years.
One of my favorite parts about downtown is there is a lot of variety, not like some of the boring malls and suburban shopping areas and neighborhoods.
I don't live or work in downtown Raleigh, although I worked in downtown Raleigh in the early 1980s and the early 1990s.
The company I work for now is located in downtown Durham, NC about 25 miles from Raleigh, although I primarily work from my home computer in my Raleigh subdivision.

These streets look like ones I've been on in other parts of the US -- but also cleaner than quite a few of them! ;b

I've never been to Raleigh. In face, I've never been to NC, so this was a wonderful tour. You are right that the textures make the city uniquely photogenic. I especially liked the 3rd and 4th pictures.
