I have a thing for many old buildings. Though this would have to be my biggest crush. Every flake of paint. Every shard of glass. Every layer of wooden vanish on this building contributes to its character. And oh my, does this old girl have character. Unfortunately in these pictures you cannot see her in all the double storey glory. (Tall buildings and narrow streets make for difficult photographing.) So let this just be a tease.
With the holiday season just coming to an end (hence my recent hiatus) I can't help but feel that I, much like this building behind me, have seen better days. To clarify this isn't a black cloud I cast over a distant future, but a rather brief, passing feeling of 'what next'. When a holiday- a period of time crammed with as many enjoyable things and lovely people as possible- is over I come down in a mild 'funk'. (Not the 1970s kind.) It's only for a couple of days, then I awaken feeling like a clean slate. Much like my outfit. Crisp, comfortable, fresh. Ready to tackle the better days that wait ahead.
