Architectural Abstract

Architectural Abstract via Instagram

Another photo of architecture taken to its abstract limits. This isn’t someplace special or unique in regards to architecture but was found in a local shopping mall. 

For myself, I was taken by the regular divisions of space in contrast to the larger panels and the curvature of the roof and how it effects the divisions.

“If only you could smell these lovely flowers when I took this picture a few years ago. The smell is almost overpowering and one bloom, floated in a dish of water, can perfume the entire house for days. They are beautiful, prolific flowers with an amazing scent and a great addition to your garden.”

What is your favorite architecture?

Architectural Abstract, Packing House, Claremont, California

The sunset created this amazing abstract light painting on the @claremontpacking building on Friday night while we had dinner at @eurekaclaremont . 
My eye is often caught by these interesting patterns. So much so that @drrosannewelch will often ask just WHAT I am taking a picture of. 😀

What is your favorite beer, wine or beverage?

Porter at Eureka, Claremont, California

Since we had to drive to Cal Poly for an awards presentation for @drrosannewelch and an eSports event for @gogojosephw, we took some time out for a stroll and dinner in Downtown Claremont. There we had drinks and dinner at @eurekaclaremont. We ended the evening at a poetry and music show at @sanctuarycoffee, a non-profit coffeehouse that donates all profits to public assistant organizations.

What is your favorite sign of Spring?

Ornamental Pear (Pyrus kawakamii)

These common street trees always put on a show this time of year. Their falling petals can resemble snow flurries as the bloom peaks, which can be quite confusing when the temperatures are in the high seventies. Despite a few flakes of snow that dropped into the San Fernando Valley this winter, these blossoms are far more common.

What is your favorite sign of Spring?

These snowflakes (leucojum) are a welcome reminder of Spring. I need to plant more of these, hit they also naturalize well in the garden. 
We can’t grow Snowdrops (galanthus) here in Southern California so these similar looking flowers are the next best thing.

My Los Angeles 77 – A Soaring Ceiling, Union Station

There is something special about starting or ending your journey at an exquisitely designed station like this. It makes the entire trip seem grander and more important — even if you are just going from Van Nuys to downtown or changing from the Red Line to the Gold Line or your way somewhere else.
Like many others, I am always struck with the architecture of Union Station and the hustle and bustle to be found there.

Waiting…

The family is waiting on a train just like they might have in the ’40s. Union Station is such a throwback but I love that it is the connection point for commuter and national rail and also 2 major subway lines here in Los Angeles. What a great way to keep a grand piece of architecture vibrant and productive.

My Los Angeles 76 – Union Station at Christmas

Another place we visited with our Italian family. We were picking up my mother-in-law who was riding in from Fullerton. We walked across to Olvera Street and then headed over to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for the annual LA County Holiday Concert. It was a great way to spend their second day in town and Christmas Eve.
