my sky

Terracotta bas-relief trim and the gutters painted pale green 
pay lovely compliment 
to the blue sky 
above this old building 
on 
Amsterdam Avenue in the West 80s.

  6. Lovely detail on the building. The sky is just beautiful. We've had clear blue skies here for a few days but today it's rained. :(

  7. The trim work is very unusual. I wonder how old the building is. Looks like this was taken on a beautiful day. It's supposed to be pretty here tomorrow. I hope so. I'm ready of the sun.

  13. I love pictures of skies, and this ones shows such a great contrast. The building itself is so interesting, as so many in the city are. The special details and designs that went into the building, always make me curious and in awe of the beauty. Beautiful shot.

  16. The color, the shapes but particularly that unusual terra cotta trim are great.

    Blogger ate my last comment, and there was a really good word verification, but blogger ate it all up. Sniff. This one is just acker. There are lots of wanna be ackers off Broadway.

  27. Wish they still made buildings with detail such as this ~ now you are lucky if they put a gutter on your home. Beautiful shot of history.

    Reach around, pat yourself of the back.
