Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Visual Narrative: Skyline 2012

For the first couple of years at Goodnight Raleigh, we posted mostly photos without much history and information. The Visual Narrative is a new monthly series where we return to that original style by bringing you a variety of photos around a common theme, with a minimal amount of words. The first entry to this new series is Skyline 2012, a current look at the tall buildings in our city.
