stepping up

Well, just look at what I went and did! Yes! I walked around to the back of this building. It was worth the trip, because I found this nice scene, just waiting for me to arrive.

the sign of the feather

That giant, padlocked chain won’t really keep anyone from getting inside, since the glass is all broken. But still, it does perhaps serve as a warning.

But mostly, that feather – all ragged casting its shadow on the door frame….

(Unrelated to the photo, but while I was here, a man pulled into the parking lot. I was pretty sure he was about to invite me to move on along, but what he was actually there to do was to feed the stray cats. After he left, I walked around the end of the building and there were nearly a dozen cats happily dining on food that he’d thoughtfully placed in several places.)

Yes!

Remember when “cashing checks” was like a regular thing that you did?

“executive” is not the word I would have used

Someone may not understand the implications of the word “executive.” None of the things here – the broken windows; the wonky, old-time Venetian blinds; the awning frame that lacks an awning; those awful benches; and even the weather checked sign conjure up anything that the word generally implies. But maybe someone needs credit for trying?

let’s pray

This used to be a fancy downtown hotel, the In Town Inn.

These days it’s neither fancy nor a hotel, which is of course the very reason my camera and I paid it a visit.
