Most of the time when you travel and stay in hotels near the highway you get your choice of view. You can view the front parking lot or rear parking lot. As a Marriott Gold Elite member I almost always get upgraded. This time it was with it.
This is the view from the Aloft in Lexington Massachusetts. We saw a variety of animals and birds during pour stay and still had the convenience of being close to the highway.
I am in the process of searching old images for post production. When I do this I frequently find images that I never shared or really studied at all. I never shared it because I found the window reflections annoying. Maybe they are but when I saw it I laughed out loud so the image works on some level.
This window was on a street in central Milan Italy not far from the Central Park.
A lot of people in Pittsburgh buy poinsettia plants for Christmas. They are beautiful although poisonous and people tend to throw them away after Christmas. Another choice is a Christmas Cactus which is called that even though it is not actually a cactus.
They grow well as house plants in our area and if treated properly will bloom year after year. This one is in our bathroom in front of typical Pittsburgh glass brick.
This tiny window is on a circular stairway leading to the second floor of Charles Austin Buck Mansion. You can visit the Mansion which is located inside Bok Tower. Touring the gardens while listening to classical music played by a master of the Carillon has been a favorite thing to do when visiting Florida.
Some friends stayed at our house over Thanksgiving while we were away. Being good guests they left this beautiful Orchid behind. At first I thought it was fake, nothing out of nature could look like that. However it is beautiful and natural. A perfect candidate to live in front of the glass brick in our new luxurious bathroom.
This week I am posting images of patterns. The thing that I like about this one is that there are two vines fighting each other for real estate. The idea of vines on brick buildings looks better than it is in reality. Vines will eventually destroy the bricks and while they are working on the bricks they attract insects and birds which might not be appreciated by an apartment tenant.
