I wonder what goes on down there.  It couldn’t be too secret as you can see the area from up above.  But, anything going on below ground level having to do with government has got to be suspect.  Doesn’t it?  Maybe I just have an overactive imagination or have seen too many secret agent movies.  Or maybe I’m innately suspicious of the workings of government.  Whatever the case, I do know I enjoy walking around the city at night.

The Colorado state senate that is.  Located in the state capitol building in Denver, this is quite a building.  Relatively small in size it’s easy to navigate and explore.  Not many people around.   Must have been during a political break.  Sometimes it seems like most politicians are on a continuous political break.  Good thing the building’s still there to marvel at.

One of the signature buildings in Savannah is the old Cotton Exchange building.  I wasn’t seeking it out on purpose but when wandering around the town’s historic district it’s hard to miss.  I can imagine the cotton pirates down at the dock, smuggling bolts of cotton for the black market.  Does cotton come in bolts?  No matter.  I still love my cotton shirts.

Do you recognize this building?  I don’t.  I should have written it down.  I often think I’ll just remember, but as time marches on invariably I don’t.  I’m pretty sure it’s one of the governmental buildings.  I know it’s in Washington DC.  Being from the west, I just always like a good building with older style architecture.  The west is more modern, newer.  Everything costs so much more now.  Or is it just that owners and builders have gotten away from an artistic value system.  A sentiment I’ve always liked is ‘One of the things about progress is that we have to stop calling it progress’.  Onward with artistic architecture.

Two posts in a row of a music theme.  Guess you can tell I like music.  Here, we were walking around in Copenhagen, exploring the various sights when I began to hear music.  I moved towards it, opened up the church door and much to my delight a beautiful little orchestra was in the middle of its rehearsal.  What an impressive venue to go along with precision in music.  I could have stayed all night, but we went back to our wandering.

I know the space needle takes the prize as far as Seattle icons go, but the EMP building at the Seattle Center gets my vote.  It’s newer and much shorter though so just doesn’t get the press or views that the needle does.  This building has so many nooks and crannies it’s not hard to find a good angle that reframes the eye.  And speaking of eye, do you see it?

New Orleans is a great place to wander around and just take in the atmosphere.  It was late and I was quite tired, but still had enough energy to keep wandering and enjoy what I was doing.  Not trying to get somewhere is always the best way to go for me.  I was on my way to my bed but not hurrying.  I turned up Iberville St. toward Bourdon and this simple scene with its signage popped out at me.  I was sweaty but happy.

Not me, but someone.  Canals are just part of the topography in Amsterdam.  Such a beautiful city, too.  It’s Europe.  It’s old.  At least compared to the western U.S.  The architecture is old and spectacular.  I imagine this particular speed boat demon racing to his favorite breakfast eatery.  Or, maybe he’s a delivery man, off to deliver his wares.  Whatever he’s doing, there isn’t much traffic here on the canal.  Of course it’s never like a freeway.  There always seems to be a relative ease tooling around on an Amsterdamian canal.

I spied this statue of naked women when wandering around the city.  Copenhagen is so clean and interesting.  Elegantly artistic.  Art and statues everywhere.  Easy, friendly and a joy to walk around.  I don’t exactly remember what these 2 women represent but I sure like the statue.

It’s so much fun walking around unfamiliar neighborhoods, seeing what they have to offer.  I had walked around New Orleans all day.  Even at night I was sweating, profusely.  Though I had stopped at a few places to eat, drink and listen to great music, I was tired.  And I still had a ways to walk, then wait for the streetcar for the ride over to my hotel in the garden district.  Color and beautiful architecture was all around me.
