These are neat little architectural elements I photographed over a lunch hour.
I'm actually quite impressed that I was able to focus on the elements and not have anyone walk in front of my photos!
Some of the captions are links to the buildings themselves if you'd like some more info...
|72 Wall Street|
|75 Wall Street|
|55 Wall Street|
I fell down the steps after taking this picture.
No bleeding. Minimal embarrassment.
|Back entrance to my office building!|
I'm actually quite proud of myself because some folks turned to see what I was photographing from time to time. I would like to think for a brief moment they were able to appreciate something pretty in the middle of the hustle and bustle of their day. I stopped to read a plaque about the financial district put up by the city and a man in a suit stopped behind me and read it too. Not too busy to learn something!
How enjoyable! Mom luvs looking at cool architectural elements too. Me, I like adding an aged hue to them (i.e. pee) ;) Great captures!ReplyDelete
Waggin at ya,
PeeS: Mom chuckled when she read about your tumble down the steps. Glad you got the shot first BOL! Also glad you didn't get hurt :)
You have a good eye for detail and they are nice photos and very interesting. Do be careful when taking your photos...no more falling down steps!ReplyDelete
We love art deoo so great pix. Have a great Monday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
I do a lot of condition assessments on buildings for my job, and I'm always amazed at the little extras that get added to a building. ...and yes, I stop to read the little plaques too!ReplyDelete
Oppsy! Thank goodness you weren't hurt in the tumble. That was quite a bit of walking to get all those pictures in one lunch hour?ReplyDelete
Very interesting. My dad takes photos of things like this too, so I'm going to make sure I show this post to him. Both of my parents love interesting architectural features, especially those on older buildings. (Sorry you fell but glad you are okay.)ReplyDelete
My mum worked in NYC for almost 20 years -- some of it in the Wall Street area where you took the pics. She had almost leaky eyes as she looked at them. She LUVS living in Tucson, AZ ('cos of the weather) but sometimes misses the hustle and bustle of New York. Please ask your mum to keep taking and posting more pics like these.ReplyDelete

Our mom worked right down there at Chambers Street last year. Now she will be on the village at Houston street. Does it take your mom long to get to her job in NYC? Our mom's commute is only about 35 minutes which is why we moved jersey cityReplyDelete
How beautiful! You have a great eye!ReplyDelete
I especially liked 60 Williams street, but they're all really neat! How nifty is it, that the fact you were looking got other people to stop and look?ReplyDelete
Nice pics, and very observant of you too! You is a urban kind of dog, how fun that must be! I bet there is eleventy thousand smells literally everywhere.ReplyDelete
Hello dear Finn!!!ReplyDelete
I missed you :)
What great photos, it's nice see things and monuments of a different country.
Have a nice week.
Nice photos. Sorry you fell down. All in the name of art. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the interesting photo tour! Sorry about that fall but hopefully the only thing you bruised was your ego. :-)ReplyDelete
WOW, very Art Deco. Not many sights like that on the beach :-) Thank you... great to see them :-)ReplyDelete
Luvs Freya Rose Blossom and co. X
Great spotting. We usually are in such a hurry we don't notice those things around us.ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
I love your pictures! I wonder how many people walk past them every day and never notice the lovely detail in the architecture!ReplyDelete
Amazing pictures! We send you lots of love and hope you are having great holidays!ReplyDelete
kiss and slubber,
Indigo and Malach the Great Danes
Great shots! Like the 2nd to last one facing up.ReplyDelete
LOVE the Our Lady of VictoryReplyDelete
Very nice architectural photos!!! Glad there was minimal embarrassment! ;-)ReplyDelete
Very lovely trimmings on those buildings. There is beauty everywhere. Thanks for the reminder that we all need to take the time and look around :DReplyDelete
Wyatt and Stanzie
You are an artist!
Kisses and hugs

Oh. I have a facebook page too.
Finn your mom has a very good eye for beauty, which of course we already knew, since she picked you out of the litter.ReplyDelete
Hugs Madi...mom said ouch at the falling down the steps part.
Love those details - sometimes people just need to take the time to look around them at the beautiful artistry on the buildings they walk past every day. Hope you are OK after your fall - woofs and licks from Magic xxReplyDelete
Loved the photos. Sorry you fell down.ReplyDelete
Very cool pictures, you are so lucky you get to live in NYC!ReplyDelete
I really appreciate your architectural photos of downtown!ReplyDelete
So much handiwork went into creating this lost art of years gone by.
New York has such amazing architectural elements, esp. of course on the old buildings. I grew up next to the Cathedral of St John the Divine; that in itself you could explore for days. And a building near there is decorated with gargoyles--I used to love those!ReplyDelete
How pretty! You know, I realized that I tend to go through life without stopping to examine the fine details, which means I miss out on so much. I've been trying to get better, but I still need to work on it. Seeing these pix is a good reminder of that, so thank you!ReplyDelete
Great pictures! I love looking for the architectural details in our city as well. Such details that are hard to find today. Our state capitol building (Albany NY) has gorgeous marble animal and people carvings throughout. So many people might just pass them by.ReplyDelete
Peeps keep forgetting to look up!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
How cool. Thanks so much for sharing these neat photos. :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos! Thanks for your nice comments on our blog. We're doing well.ReplyDelete
Thor and Jack
What terrific pictures! How great that you get to see these sights everyday. Thanks for sharing. :)ReplyDelete
Love the pix! I used to work on Williams. I always want to take pix of pretty city things but am afraid people will stare at me! :-)ReplyDelete
