Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

IMG_2652

I love the clean, angular lines of this fire escape staircase, the shadows thrown onto the brick walls, the metalwork – both the intersecting picket railing and the graceful filigree elements – and the architectural detail of the windows.

Solid. Clean. Strong. The hallmark of many of these beautiful old buildings.

    • Thanks Mara. Several of the photos I’ve used for this and other posts were taken in Galena, Illinois, an old, quirky river town along the Mississippi River here in the Midwest. It’s got beautiful old architecture and LOTS of fun shops. Hundreds of them, in fact and loads of character everywhere you turn. A favorite weekend getaway for me and my husband. I have five sisters and some of us and my mom have stayed there as well in various bed and breakfasts. Highly recommended if you ever come to the US (and of course, if you do, you MUST look me up!!)

    • Thanks Janet. Actually, I’m in the Des Moines metro area but love visiting the Galena area. Lovely, quaint, peaceful and fun!

      Appreciate the comment and glad you stopped by! 🙂

      • Drove right by you recently then. One of our daughters is on a six-month work assignment in Shenandoah. I hit the Des Moines area right a rush hour, not the most exciting experience. 🙂
