Amazing Stonework, June 14

Good morning friend’s. It is Monday morning and time again for you pics of amazing stonework in your area. While my original concept was buildings, I had a post last week involving an amazing statue so that could be a possibility. My goal was to highlight the artwork created by builders of long ago but art in stone is art in stone, so share your beauties with us. Remember to attach the tag above so that others can follow you as well. Enjoy.

My pictures today are more about the tiny details.

Although the window itself has been replace with a more efficient style, the original stone around the window was left intact.

Yes, I am still stuck on the same building as last week, City Hall, but there are so many beautiful details. The intricate castings around the window arch and on top of the column are beautiful. The smooth block in the window is in contrast to the more rough texture of the main walls of the building. And remember this was build in 1895. There are other older and more intricate buildings around, so share what you see.

And as always, remember to be kind. Its a great way to start your week.

Always Be Kind

      1. I love the best of today’s architecture as well, but most of the buildings that you see coming up around you are not built to last, unlike these old stone structures. Buildings which last very long have a much smaller impact on the environment. And, of course, you can’t possibly build ugly if you want it to last a few hundred years.

  1. Beautiful, Anita. I wish our schools and libraries were built on such traditions of beauty instead of the bland, utilitarian, shiny designs that inspires no body.
