What a beautiful town Cuero, TX is! I had no idea. I would have never known if I didn’t get this gig.
My initial contact with RMA Architects was an inquiry to photograph the new DeWitt County Annex. They actually found me through a google search. Finally, my SEO efforts are paying off!
Since Cuero is a good two hours away, a scouting trip was not really in the cards. So, we discussed everything over a zoom call and reviewed the initial project renderings. RMA wanted to match the renderings on 80% of the photos. I’m finding this to be more common. This way, the architects can show that their final products match conception.
One of the coolest things about this building was the “shadow wall”. At a certain time of the year, the brick on the wall cast a shadow that spell out “De Witt County, TX.” Part of the project was to create a time-lapse showing the casting of the shadow. But to everyone’s luck, it was the only day it actually rained in three months. Luckily, one of the architects captured a time lapse on his cell phone:
