Capitol Hill
2

Our usual morning walk.

The church is now three apartments - something a little sad about that though I am hardly religious.

Moth with an M10 and 35mm Summilux.

Re: Capitol Hill

Both are good examples of the quality the image the camera can produce. The compositions do not excite me though. I think #1 would have been better once you passed the house with the recycling bin out front. Just my opinion though.

Re: Capitol Hill

I like the light. Re. recycling bin, I am no artist to take my comment FWIW - I would say it could be considered as balancing out the sewer cover on the right in which case stepping back a bit to get the full cover would be interesting.

Re. church that is now an apartment - well that's quite interesting and a new one for me.

Three apartments - at well over 2 million each!

Re: Capitol Hill

churches wearhouses and schook houses do make some unusual and dramating living spaces.  My condo in Watertown ma was in an 1816 army arsenal building and was therefore named the Arsenal condominiums, such originality.

Re: Capitol Hill

Same trend here in Jersey City for years - old bank buildings, factories are now lofts and apartments selling at sky-high prices. Can't fault the construction though, some of these old buildings are built to survive an apocalypse.

Till I was nine I my family lived in old army Barack’s in Delhi that had been repurposed after Indian independence in ‘47 into India’s first School of Social Work.  Old memories but very good ones.  Tall ceilings, large overhangs, high level ventilators - the British civil engineers had figured out how to make people comfortable in the hot summers.

Interesting. I spent many a summer in Summer Hill, near Shimla. The Viceregal Lodge (which later became Indian Institute of Advanced Study where dad was a fellow) there was quite an engineering masterpiece with piping systems for hot/cold water and a steam powered electric generator back when it was built. Same for numerous bridges in that mountainous region that connected Kalka station to Shimla on the "toy train" railway - built during the British era and still operational.
