Incredibly bright and sunny for a sepia.

Would I miss a Monochrome Monday at your blog, Daryl? I think not!

Marie Reed said...

Holy Cow! WHat groovy word art!

Mental P Mama said...

I was wondering what you were doing there;) I wish I were on my way to LGA right now....

Jill of All Trades said...

Good morning Daryl.

sybil law said...

I hope that one will be sold - I am a buyer right here!!!

Thumbelina said...

Nice shot. I like the way the shop name is written. Nice texture.

Gaston Studio said...

OMG, I want those ornate gates! And I think that might be my clawfoot bathtub up there!

Cool!

Erin said...

oh my...some place i would love to browse about in.

Babooshka said...

For the name alone I shoot it, but those tones and shadows are a knockout.

Dianne said...

even the bit of graffiti has a vintage look

judi said...

Wonderful stuff to look at, I don't want to clean any of it though. :D

B Squared said...

Looks like an architectural salvage place. I love those.

Deb said...

I went over to their web site and it is comforting to know their main business is reclamation. I imagine they are very pricy as nothing had a price available. If you had unlimited cash, than shopping here would be divine!

Dragonstar said...

What a treasure trove! The lines and shadows really appeal to me - but then, you probably knew they would! ;)

Trisha said...

How creative is that sign? I absolutely love it!

Snowbrush said...

I very much enjoyed your blog, esp the story of the new stove and the picture of you, your mom, and your sister.

Carver said...

I love the lettering on the building. Cool shot!

Big Hair Envy said...

I believe I could do some real damage at the Demolition Depot....everything old is new again!!! Do you know how hard it is to find glass doorknobs??? GAH!

ds said...

Clever, clever sign; clever, clever you! (Oh, those streetlamps--where's Gene Kelly when you need him?)

"Sunshine" said...

Just. Plain. Awesome. You catch the coolest shots, Daryl!

aims said...

I'd be in there in a flash! I love places like that Daryl.

Have you ever been inside?

TexasRed said...

Nice! I had a favorite architectural salvage place in Kansas City, but it's sadly too far of a drive now!

Lily Hydrangea said...

does this place have neat things you'd like to take home?

mielikki said...

that is very cool, I like it

diane said...

Perfect shot for monochrome!

2sweetnsaxy said...

Cool shot. Looks like the kind of place that would draw me in for a closer look. :-)

Akelamalu said...

I would just love to spend a few hours in that store. I already saw some things I want just sitting outside!

RuneE said...

Fitting name for it!

rh-bilder said...

Great shot! Really like the tones and light in the photo.

Jacob said...

Well, this is monochromially magnificent. What in the world is a Demolition Depot? Do they blow up bombs. Old movies? Old politicians?

By the way, I don't think "monochromially" is a real word.

Should be, though.

Dina ... UK said...

This is a real teaser...lol
I would LOVE to see more in there....:-/
Great mono image...

Bim said...

Great shot of great letters. I wish it was a little closer so that I could take a peek inside.

Jo Beaufoix said...

That sign is wicked, I love the lettering. And your header is looking blumming marvellous dear. x

Clueless in Boston said...

Great signage. Someone there has an eye for details.

Country Girl said...

Oh yeah. This looks like fun. Seriously.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Great shot and a great name to it! :-)

Gennasus said...

Love the sign in sepia. And it looks a very interesting place. Bound to be bargains galore in there!

Joyce said...

Now that is one interesting shot with the cool sign and the light.

Robynn's Ravings said...

I don't need to go in the store; I just need the sign over my front door. Good one!

imom said...

Just from seeing your beautiful shot of the outside, I want to go inside! Looks so intriguing.

Flea said...

Oooo! What a cool place! Someday I'll come visit and I'll want to see ALL of the places you photograph. And eat hot dogs. 'K?

Cloudia said...

Heaven!!!!!

steviewren said...

Love that fantastic grill or door or whatever it was. I would love to have that as a headboard for my bed or as an art piece over the fireplace.

Thanks for the nice welcome back.

Robin said...

What a treasure trove! Wish I could visit...

Summer Stock Sunday starts May 31st - come check it out!

kazu said...

It's cool.
Great photo!!

Mojo said...

I'm assuming they specialize in salvage fixtures and such, right? I need to stay out of places like that. They give me ideas. Usually expensive ones.

But I can't shop at a photograph... not even one this good!

Luisa Santos said...

how beautiful! love the way the letters are built.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I really like this in sepia, Daryl. It'd be tons of fun to poke around this place, I think.

Snooty Primadona said...

I don't know where this place is, but I must go there one day. I can feel it calling me. Not a bad picture either, my friend.

sunnymama said...

What a fantastic building and the picture is so interesting, so many details to look at!

Dagrun said...

This was really nice!

mononeil said...

What wonderful light you captured here. Nice one.

maryt/theteach said...

Betcha you can get some beautiful antiques there, Daryl! :)

Martha said...

What a terrific image! I really love your Wordless Wednesday too - both excellent!
