Hartford, Connecticut, and its blend of old and new, bright and sedate makes for an interesting visual experience on a sunny day. Sunlight bouncing off of bronzed glass onto this theatre conjured a dreamy other world. The reflected light lands on different planes or seemed to float. All good.

    I love the vibe of that part of town. Brick buildings make for a homey feel I think.

  15. I like the diversity of old and new in the first picture... it feels like the building was plopped in there by a time machine... also, I want those answers.

  17. We have never been to Hartford. Maybe we should stop there on our way to Canado this summer.

    I particularly like the flaming red curtains on the building. I don't know why but I do.

    And thanks for stopping by my blog.
