skinny buildings…

Every year when I go through Cincinnati I wonder about the ‘skinny buildings’…I’ve done some research trying to find out why the tall thin buildings?  What I found was reference to their historical aspect but nothing with detailed information about this particular architecture preference.   I’m going to assume when these buildings were built the roads were narrow,  with possibly a large influx of settlers, with space being limited?   If anyone knows the reason please leave a message…fyi…photo taken while driving, not me of course!

home…

well…I’m home…so I will be back posting and visiting again regularly!  I took many photos, some I like and some I don’t, but for today I’m going to show you three of one of my favourite things to capture…”naked trees” as I like to call them.  they are beautiful with their leaves, but there is so much more detail and character to them, when they are scraggly looking, bent in some of the most interesting ways…

lone.tree.kentucky.2013love this scene…as you can see it was a rather dreary looking day, but warm, which cancels out the dreary!  on the ride home somewhere in Kentucky…

more.trees.Kentucky.2013same day and drive… but I’m fine with the colours…trees.kentucky.2013.2I don’t mind a dreary day once in a while, especially if it is warm…

PS…all photos were taken from my moving vehicle, on the drive home from Florida…
