An amazing piece of industrial Victoriana. Imagine cooking and baking with this beast!

Wandering about Denver, we happened upon this historical home which also serves as an important women’s history center.

I collected many such pictures on our trip to Milan last September and have often done the same on past trips to Italy. They are always so fascinating especially when they give such tantalizing views of what lies beyond.

Who works here? What do they do? Where does this doorway lead?

I found myself asking these questions every time we passed an entry like this. I collected many such pictures on our trip to Milan last September and have often done the same on past trips to Italy. They are always so fascinating especially when they give such tantalizing views of what lies beyond.

Omenoni (Big Men), Milan via My Instagram

Omenoni (Big Men), Milan

Omenoni (Big Men), Milan via My Instagram

Spotted one of our many strolls about Milano. This home is quite near La Scala Opera House. Yet another of the amazing scenes from our September 2018 visit. 

Casa degli Omenoni is a historic palace of Milan, northern Italy, located in the eponymous street of Via degli Omenoni (number 3).[1] It was designed by sculptor Leone Leoni for himself; he both lived and worked there. It owes its name to the eight atlantes decorating its facade, termed “omenoni” (“big men” in Milanese), which were sculpted by Antonio Abondio,[1] most probably on a design by Leoni.[2] Lions (a reference to the “Leoni” family)[3] are a recurring theme of its decorations; in particular, a large relief placed under the cornice depicts two lions tearing a satyr into pieces. The overall style of the palace and the decorations have been noted to include several references to the art of Michelangelo.[4] The internal courtyard, modified in 1929 by Piero Portaluppi, has a colonnade with metopes and triglyphs. — Wikipedia

We spent our first day in Denver walking about downtown enjoying the scenery and the historical sites. We passed this — the Voorhies Memorial — as we walked towards the Colorado State House.

Capture this during an event at this amazing, repurposed, location in Culver City which used to be the Helms Bakery back in the day. Now it is filled with a variety of design companies showing off their latest creations.

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.
