Window fan


There was a time when I would have found that electric fan in the church window to be a distraction. That time may or may not have been relatively recent. Now, though, I think it is perfectly placed to echo the arched top of the window overhead.

The secret is to stay out of the sun


These shutters are like a sunhat for this building. They keep the sun off the windows, but allow the ocean breezes in.

While you are reading this, I am wearing my own hat, to keep the desert sun off my face. I’ll be back around shortly and will reply to your comments as soon as I can.

Frank Gehry’s busy


And so is his architecture, most of which gives me a headache.

This one was no exception.

I try to respond to comments right away, but this week I’m away and it may take me a few days to get back to you. Please do comment, though….

East Side 13


Well, there were a lot of things to like in THIS place. That mysterious East Side 13 message on the door, the big wooden spools stored inside, the way that board is cut on each end to have the proper angle, the promise of escape way in the back.

The dogs across the street weren’t too happy that I stopped and looked around, but here’s the deal: they were inside a fenced yard and I wasn’t.  We agreed to disagree about my being there, and eventually I left.

Spur’s not a big place – 1200 people, 1.6 square miles. I like it. You’ve seen it before, here on the blog (My favorite building and For safekeeping).

The folks I know in Spur are mighty friendly, so if you’re in the area, stop in and say hello.
