The Castle

I took an exploratory drive out to Chandler Arizona last Friday.  I thought I'd drive by the building I was working in when I first started this blog back in 2008.  However, I found a lot of new things to admire and of course to photograph.  One of them was this place called The Castle.  It's a place for rent for weddings, conferences and parties.

Of course, it's built to look like a castle.  A small castle, but a castle nonetheless.

It came complete with a rusty cannon just in case it might be needed.

Big, sturdy wooden doors look like they are fit for a castle.

And, a large circular fountain sits in front surrounded by stone frogs spouting streams of water.
Do you suppose if you kiss one of those frogs they turn into a prince?

I have more discoveries to show you over the next few weeks.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm visiting a hot tourist spot in my own way.

All that's missing is the moat Sharon, but then there is the fountain:) Bet this spot gets used for wedding photos a lot.

That's a most interesting building. I can imagine a couple might find enough attractive things about it that they would want to have a wedding there. A similar building exists in Davie/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It is used for conventions and shows as well as weddings. Your photos really capture the essence of the place.

I can imagine that it must be popular especially if the inside has lots of interesting details too, Sharon!

Who would have thought one would find a castle in Chandler!

Hmm. More like if you kiss one of those frogs you might get some unfiltered water. Impressive but it caters to certain fantasies.

I can particularly see the appeal for wedding photographers of the place.

A rather modest castle by the standards of some of those in Europe

That cannon still looks menacing!
