Theme Day: Facade
The first of the month is always theme day for "City Daily Photo" bloggers and this months theme is "Facade" a word the dictionary describes as "the front of a building that looks onto a street". It seems like all the buildings with interesting 'facades' in Phoenix I've shown before. But then when driving in downtown I happened to pass the Masonic Temple building. The facade of that building is fairly simple but I do like the lamps on either side of the door.
And I really like the urns that are recessed in the side of the building.
But, what struck me the most about this building was its simplicity. As I looked at it I recalled the Masonic Temple in St. Louis Missouri that I used to pass frequently when I was working there years ago. Now, that was a building that truly lived up to its "temple" description. I put a small photo of it that I found on the internet below.
