Roofline


This might look like a grand cabin but, it's actually a business building located on a very busy street in Phoenix not far from where I live.  It used to house a financial services company but, I think it might be empty right now.  I've always thought this was a rather unusual design to be located in such a traditional part of town.  I framed the photo so that I'd just capture the triple roofline of the building.

I think this is on McDowell.

Unlike Dave I think it is on 15th Ave. just south of Thomas on the east side of the street. We're probably both wrong!

It's actually on 7th Ave just south of Thomas. You were close Kathy.

I remember these. Right next to the Willo District.

I just love this shot! The composition is great and the subject unexpected. Wouldn't this make a nice western steakhouse?

I'm with Judy...this is unexpected to see in downtown Phoenix. The building materials just don't seem quite right. :)

This really is an unexpected design in the middle of the city Sharon,wonder what kind of business.. love all the guessing as to where it is haha!

Unusual for sure. I do like the wood, which works better in Phoenix than Ocala I'd guess. And the shake shingles. Excellent composition!

Great composition, Sharon! Surprising indeed for Phoenix...

Kathy said...

Of course it's 7th! What was I thinking. I lived a fourth of a block from 7th Ave! Duh!

Nice. Your perspective is nice and the shot could not have been sharper!

It looks like a rural area. Beautiful composition.
