Focus on Life 52 photos Week 16 Go For A Walk

52 week badge

Hi Y'all,

Welcome to week 16 of Focusing on Life 52 photos.  This week Sally's prompt is "Go For A Walk" here is what Sally had to say...

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
                                                    ~Robert Frost

Grab your camera, open the door and step outside into the fresh air.  Take a walk!  Whether you walk to your favorite chair on the porch, walk a few miles down a rural road or a busy city street  take a moment to be aware of the beauty of the world and let its grandeur energize your soul, inspire your mind and jump start your creativity.  Step back and look at the wide world around you and capture a shot of the landscape in front of you!

Get to Snappin!

I did not have the time to go on the walk that I wanted to take this past week, if I was not at work, then I was working on a challenge piece.  So this picture came from the walk I took in the downtown area of Montgomery the day I took the pictures for weeks 14 and 15.

I have always been a fan of Art Deco and Modern Art.  This building is the only Modern Art building in Montgomery's downtown area.  I do not know who the designer of this building is or how long it has been in Montgomery, but I just think it is a cool looking building.  This building is located on Washington Ave right across the street from the Southern Poverty Law Center.  Alabama Dept. of Public Safety's Driver's License Reinstatement used to be in this building, but moved out in 2005 when the new RSA Criminal Justice Center was opened (the building where I work).  The building behind this one on the left with the green panels is the new RSA Headquarters building, RSA stands for Retirement Systems of Alabama.  On the right you can see the dome of the State Capitol and the white building in front of the Capitol is the State of Alabama Archives and History building.

Thank you to Sally for always coming up with great prompts to inspire us in our photo taking, and thank you for stopping by, now go on by Sally's blog to see what the other's have been snapping photos of.

Happy beading Y'all,

  3. What a wonderful looking building and such fab windows

  4. No flowers and no water... A totally different perspective on the weeks challenge!

  5. I love learning about the history of Montgomery! I've never been there, but there is so much to see!! Might have to come visit you :O

  6. Interesting building compared to the rest of Montgonery you have shown us. Very nice choice.

  7. Interesting the contrast between building styles. I bet there are some who don't like it at all, but I bet it actually looks pretty cool.

  8. That's a very interesting building and seems to stand out from the rest. I've enjoyed your pictures of Montgomery...makes me want to visit!

  9. What a great photo! I love seeing all kinds of architectural designs. It seems now days they just want to get it done on the cheap instead of putting some thought to the design.

  10. Therese I love your photo for this week - the building is awesome and I love the look of it! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  11. Very interesting building and photo too.

  12. That's a different looking building- modern for sure.

  13. I've not been to Montgomery. Thanks for sharing part of it's beauty

  14. Unique architecture. Those massive windows must be really cool from the inside! I love Frost poems. He lived in a house about 20 minutes from me. Supposedly he wrote a couple of his most famous pieces there. I have yet to tour that museum to find out for sure!
