Sunday Scenery

sundayscenerybutton_lg

My friend Lee at Tarheel Ramblings has come up with a new Sunday photo meme for folks to participate in with some very simple rules or - even simpler! - perhaps no rules? As Lee puts it ...

"There are no real rules for participation. All you have to post a favorite photograph and come back here on Sunday morning to link your post to mine. I do ask that you post only photographs you can claim the copyright to (in other words, you clicked the shutter). That’s all there is to it! Have fun and be sure to get out there and enjoy the Sunday Scenery!"

If you decide to play along there's even a couple of cool buttons from which to choose from over at Lee's place (like the one I have above) so click here, grab yourself one, and join in! This meme is a great way to keep it simple on Sunday and considering I usually work 16 hour shifts on Sunday - simple is good!

For my Sunday Scenery today I thought I'd post a picture of a building that I've taken pictures of before - the Slater Building at Norwich Free Academy where Amanda attends high school. I took this picture this past Monday when we had some beautiful clear blue skies.

Slater Towers

As an added bonus, I thought I'd also post pictures of the archways and doors that lead into the Slater Building as I just thought they were kind of cool and I love the architecture. They just don't build things like they used to!

Monday, January 12th

Whatever you do and wherever you go today, may your Sunday and your scenery both be beautiful!

  3. The first picture is my favorite with the contrast between the red brick and the deep blue sky. Excellent Sunday Scenery, Linda.

  8. Old buildings RULE! There's just something about being almost able to connect with the past through appreciation of what's left behind. Your photos seem to do that very well. Feel free to keep sharing with us, Linda! :)

  16. You have captured the most interesting architectural details yet again! NFA does have some beautiful old buildings, and Norwich looks fantastic in your renderings!

  17. By comparison most of our new buildings look like boxes! I love this one. Can you imagine the price tag if it was built today???
    Keep on shootin' them - I'll keep on lookin'!

  18. What a beautiful photo! I love this architecture. Late 19th century perhaps?

    The building reminds me of the library in Shelton. Someday I'll post pix of it and you'll see what I mean.
