weekly photo challenge: geometry

Image  I love details. When we visited Asheville, NC some time ago and we walked by the old S&W Building on Patton Ave, I was taken with the beautiful art deco style of the facade…and I wanted to remember the blues and the shapes of it, so I took this shot. I don’t believe the building was occupied at the time we were there.  I hope it is now, though; it’s so beautiful, and deserves to be the home of some amazing restaurant or a funky cool shop or pub. I’ll definitely check and see the next time I find myself in Asheville…

we fell in love with western north carolina this past summer, when the boy spent a week at a summer camp there…while he was exploring the mountains and discovering nature at camp, tom and i were exploring the mountains and discovering nature on our own (with a few detours into the amazing city of asheville, nc…i could go on and on and on…) one of the most awesome things that we stumbled upon while driving the blue ridge parkway was a place called graveyard falls…an easy hike from the parkway, when we got to the falls, there were people wading in the falls, and a couple of artists were perched on the rocks painting the scene…the boy really wants to go back to camp this year…he doesn’t have to do too much persuading, because we’d really love to go back to the mountains, too…so beautiful…

my mind is wandering today as I begin preparing for our thanksgiving feast…i am thinking about our summer trip to asheville, nc…it’s a place i loved visiting, and want to go back to sometime soon…this guy and his buddy were playing in the park at lunchtime when we visited; they were trying to raise up some cash for their band’s upcoming road trip (can’t remember where they were going…alabama, maybe? hmmm…) his drumming was sweet…but his t-shirt made me stick an extra dollar in his cup.
