Deepening shadows

121914

This building is under renovation – one of these days, it’ll be office space for Hockley County.

I happen to know the architect* for the project, and was able to get a tour one afternoon. Of course, the tour wasn’t planned in advance or anything like that**, so the only camera I had with me was the one on my phone. Which is better than no camera at all, of course. And the phone did a great job of capturing the way the shadows deepened in waves across that far wall.

* Because I’m married to him.
** Even though I am licensed planner! (Don’t tell the American Institute of Certified Planners – I’d hate for them to revoke my license!)

Screened

The window screens on this building are raveling away in a very nice fashion.

Rock corral

The same misty morning that gave me yesterday’s shot let me get a view of the canyon where the mist obscured the far edges, blending the escarpment into the sky.

The previous owner’s rock corral (My term, not his. As far as I know.) in the foreground looks the way it always looks, only a little more damp this time.

Like watery gems

This was a rare sight: a day so misty that tiny water drops clung to the tips of vegetation….

Layers peeled away

The inside of this place is in much worse shape than the outside. For one thing, most of the windows are broken, so moisture and animals have free access. And – this is new – there’s a hole in the roof, which is letting in water every time it rains. The paper on the gypboard walls is starting to peel away. While that’s never a good sign as far as a building’s longevity, it does make for some interesting photos…
