Since my neighbors have all been posting such wonderful pictures from around the world of different architectural types, I thought it to be time that the photos that have been living in my camera made their debut as well. Here are a few photos I've collected:
This was taken in Bisbee, AZ. This is an old mining town near the Mexico border. One morning I happened across this alley way and was struck by how the light and shadows almost divide this picture in two.
An artist owns this guest house. It had once been a miner's cabin and sits high on a hill overlooking the whole town. I wonder how long it took her to collect all those license plates.
This is looking up from an old tinted glass sidewalk grate. I am underneath the street. I love how the light shines purple through the grate.
This was also taken in the Seattle Underground Tour. I have an obsession with old buildings. Maybe it's the mystery surrounding them. I wonder about the people who built them. Who lived and worked there?
This building had been a hotel in Seattle over 100 years ago. The walls had been covered with a green colored paint and lined with a floral stenciled etching. You can't make it out from this photo but I could see it while there. Imagine the fancy ladies in their feathered hats sipping tea on that circular red velvet sofa.
Not sure when this came into vogue although it is quite old. I was quite surprised to see this in the Seattle Underground Tour.
Here is the hotel again. This time you can see the stenciling I mentioned in the other photo.
