Photo Hunt Saturday - Architecture
This weeks theme is architecture. I had a tough time in that I couldn't decide what to post, so I am posting a few of my favorites!
The first two are natural architecture. We found this birds nest last summer under a tree in my parent's back yard, so the girls brought it home and placed it in a bush. They were hoping some birds would take up residence in it, but they had no takers!
What creature is better at building it's home than a spider? Here is a web with fresh fallen dew on it!
This building will always have a special place in my heart. It was standing under the stone arch, under the sunset with the waves crashing behind us, that Husband proposed to me just 9 short years ago. I have always loved walking around, admiring the stone architecture of this building by the beach!
We love to take the kids hiking in the nice weather. One of our favorite places to hike is at the local Audubon Society. It has wetlands, marshes and fields. While hiking last summer (the same trail we usually take, we discovered this old stone arch leading under the airline trail. We thought it was just a unique piece of architecture, in the middle of nowhere!
This is a picture of a local private boarding school, where some of our friends live. I have always loved driving by, seeing the ivy climbing its way up the sides of the building.
And this last photo is a shot of the dome inside the Children's Hospital where Meenie spent a week last summer after coming down with viral encephalitis. Many meals were spent under this dome, as it was the one place we could use or phones to keep in touch with family and the girls. I would often sit in the center and stare up at the dome, marveling at the architecture and could just feel a sense of calming. It was a place I could relax and forget about my sick child upstairs for just a few moments.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Feel free to browse around the rest and take a peek at my 365 Day of random Pictures (link on the sidebar)! I promise more interesting pictures coming soon, as we exit the big freeze (aka winter)!
