Magnolia No-57

Sunday was a beautiful day so Vicki and I took a drive and we ended up in a little town called Frenchtown in New Jersey. The side of this building caught my eye. I like the bricks, the fire escape and the shadow of the tree. The title of the post is what's written on the front of the building.

James, that is a lot of bricks. It is a nice image. I like the red of the fire escape stairs.

That really is a photogenic side of a building. The fire escape adds great lines and the brick has the color and texture...it all adds up to a very cool find and capture!

It has an almost Georgian look about it. (My very favourite type of architecture.)

Sunny said...

I can see how this caught your eye, it's a great combination of colors, textures and shadows. The fire escape is really cool.

This view is typically american: we have NOT such escape stairs here!I like the harmony of different reds and the winter light. "Frenchtown"?there's surely a story behind this name...

What an eye for things. A red fire escape against a plain brick building. Nice.

The photograph of the brick building may express yourself most.
It is lets me feel a composure dignity and stable atmosphere.

I have a thing for fire escapes, partly because although we lived in a house and not an apartment building, I saw many downtown in Harrisburg, and I wanted to live where there was a fire escape. Still don't!!

j'adore les bâtiments en brique, il est superbe. Impression de me retrouver dans des quartiers d'Évry ou les bâtiments sont en briques

You're right, all the elements make it a striking photo.

Carletta said...

Love this shot James for those things you point out, the brick with the red and the shadows. I like the stone wall as well. I really like the old windows.
Interesting name.

Where did the 14th window go?

Very nice discovery and a beautifully-composed shot. I wouldn't have thought the colors go together, but they do. I love it!

I love this so much. Artistic. We really do live in an area that is surrounded by so many pretty places, don't we?
