New Year’s resolutions – boring to me after so many years of making and breaking them. So this year I’m not going to talk about them. I have one very personal resolution that I *will* be keeping, and several goals that I’d like to achieve. And as part of those goals, hopefully I can blog more and take more *interesting* photos. . . time will tell! Until then, Happy New Year everyone! And if the sky wasn’t cloudy here, I would capture the Blue Moon.
Part of my personal resolution involves this lake. . . as seen from the balcony of the mansion at Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua.
I have a desire to get back outside and take tons of photos. I haven’t been able to do that very often lately, due to driving so much. These are the types of photos I have been taking lately. Building photos. Photos to send to people to obtain help to redo one of our stairwells at work. Don’t get me wrong, I love these old architectural details.
Marble with wood. Too bad the tiled floor is covered with that gross tile.
Nice and thick marble and wood
Detail underneath the stairs
Very tall walls with window wells that have been filled in.
Long wooden banisters
Ceiling to . . .
Floor Metal Molding
Detail of molding. Wouldn’t this look good in different colors?
The stairwells used to be open with marble stairs, in fact, they still are in the back staircase, and I’ll have to take photos of that sometime. Ohhh, I know, I’m sooo exciting.
I also take pix of oak molding in the 2nd floor exhibit area – covered up by years of paint:
The latest article I wrote and photo from the Onondaga Historical Association’s archives, appearing in the Dec/Jan Central New York Business Exchange magazine:
Unfortunately the Sears building now stands empty on Salina Street in Syracuse.
I’m in the mood for some intense Arizona beauty and sunshine:
and some Arizona ruggedness:
