Not another flower..

I'm not going to lie, it was little hard for me not to post a picture of a flower up here today.
But I had been saving these since last week and wanted to finally share them (this was the first picture of this cluster of buildings that I posted last week).

Even though I do love these buildings (they are so old and neat!), I can't help but cringe a little at how dreary they look..especially after I have been obsessed with bright, happy flowers lately!

Oh, but don't worry 'cause I have a cheery flower all lined up for my next post :)

By the way, I use my fave grunge texture that I found HERE  on both of these photos.





I 'm also linking up to Communal Global

These are awesome! Not flowers, but pretty in their own way. I really do love the first one with the sky as the backdrop.

I love old stuff And these pictures! Well done.

Dixie Mom said...

Oh, I love that kind of stuff. Those pictures are way cool!

Jennifer Bowen said...

These are fabulous! Nice texture. The grunge look is definitely appropriate for these shots. I know what you mean about flowers. I was going to post one for Macro Monday, but decided on something else instead. I'm pretty sure next week there will be more flower posts. =)

Thanks for linking up with us at CG.

I know where you live ;) (http://depthsandheights.smugmug.com/Landscapes/The-Big-Picture/) -- I took mine from a different streetside view... (just found you via SST)

Seriously...look at the construction...the letters are incorporated into the brick pattern! You don't find this kind of detail [pride!] in construction today.

Marvelous photos!

I love both of these. Great editing to evoke such different feelings in them.

I love the texture in that first one- I can almost feel it through my screen

You must have been in Winston-Salem.

Jennifer Thompson said...

That's a great texture. I like the first one, with the bright sky background.

There is something very intriguing about an old dingy building - great shots :D And love the processing!

I love the perspective. It's breathtaking.

Thought you might like to join in on a Friday carnival here. Hope to see you! Cheers!
