Saturday photo hunt--architecture



They remind me of the "see no evil, hear no evil" monkeys for some reason. Seen on building on West Side of Chicago.

Yes, I can see that, too! They look so solemn and "guarding"!

Aren't they fabulous?! And do you know what that building was? from the windows that I see it looks like it might have been a school or something like that? It doesn't appear to be anything that would have indicated "special" adornments... does it? And yet... there they are! I LOVE that!

Perhaps they are similar to the carvings on a totem pole, or some sort of stylized lion. Chicago has some wonderful architecture. Thanks for stopping by.

I saw those old happy/sad drama masks. I'm surprised the movie house was there until the 1990s. I thought they all died away in the seventies. I suppose they will never come back. I enjoy the details in the old buildings.

Very interesting, from all cities I have seen in the States, Chicago was my favourite, because of its amazing architecture. I loved the old skyscrapers with their golden ornaments and the old houses in some areas. It had been a feast for a photographers eye !
