Here are some views from the Green and thereabouts in Waterbury, Connecticut. The architect Cass Gilbert designed City Hall (second picture), which is not on the green but close to it. The building is being renovated, which is a good thing. It's a gem.

I've been taking so many macro shots that I thought I would stand back and have a look. I love this odd little city. But I missed getting close to the good stuff. So next week.

  12. I so enjoy old architechture. It has real character as opposed to some of the boxy stuff that they seem to be building these days. Lovely photographs.

  14. The word "stately" comes to mind immediately, but hardly seems adequate. My favorite is the last one though. Such character.

  15. They are all lovely buildings. The town house is impressive for sure and the church is very beautiful with that steep spire reaching high up to the sky.
    Like Mojo I also fell for the last house.

  27. In the "olden days," architecture was like art -- they cared about ambience. I am so glad that many of our older buildings were saved from the chopping block.
