It's In the Details
Washington House, Yellow Springs, PA 

Every where I go I notice the details.

Lemon Hill, Fairmount Park, PA 

That is why I just love architectural elements.

Woodford Mansion, Fairmount Park, PA 

Sit me in an old structure and I am happy just taking it all in.

30th Street Station, Philadelphia, PA 

Take me to an architectural salvage shop
and my heart sings.

Mattison Castle, Ambler, PA 

It's a cheap date - that salvage shop.

Smithville Park, New Jersey 

Until I decide that a salvaged mantle 
would look so much better over our fireplace 
 than our 1970s version. 
I think it's time to tell my husband I need a cheap date 
cause that mantle is starting to bug me. 

That cheap date just got expensive. 
Shhhh...he doesn't need to know yet. 

The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

I love your details, Rebecca. I recently read "The Paris Architect", and this reminded me of the detail that helped an architect survive the war.

These are such stunning details.

I'm with you, at odd angles looking for the unusual, connecting with the artisan who created the masterpiece.

i have never had a mantle of any kind, no fireplace at all. well mother had a fake mantle over a fake fireplace but i don't count that as mine.
i love the lion and LOVE the KEY... and that first photo is amazing. the texture/details of brick, wood, bannister, and looking down down down. LOVE IT

Oh yes, it is all about the details. I have to find a good architectural salvage store near me.

Sometimes it's a matter of looking up to see the detail, and not just keeping your eyes at head level if you get my meaning.

Wonderful surrounds that you captured. Love the banisters shot.

Kathy said...

And you photograph all those details so beautifully. You have a wonderful perspective and knack of finding just the right angle.

These are great shots. I love neat angle and my eyes did a double take a few times. Nicely done! :)

You did an awesome job capturing the "details" here. I loved them all but I think my favorite was the Lions head
