Frank Sinatra Looking Out a Window

While stopped at a red light, I looked to my left and wondered about that crazy middle door in the center of the second floor. Going where?
When I uploaded the photo on the computer tonight, I noticed Frank Sinatra peering out the upper window.

Freedom Tower Two Views

My sister sends me photos from her early morning walks in New York City.

Her guest blogging helps me with interesting posts when I’m not really going anywhere.

It’s cool she’s a tourist where she lives. Thanks, Mary.

Garden of Constants by Artist Barbara Grygutis

Seen last week when I was on Ohio, I was walking to the swim meet from the  parking garage. And I did experienced exactly what the article quoted below says….”a fun surprise to stumble upon”

The Garden of Constants at the Ohio State University is a fun surprise to stumble upon. The massive, colorful numbers bring a whimsical air to the lawn outside the engineering building. They’ve stood there since 1994… “ from atlasobscura.com the large numbers are sculpted  from copper and bronze by artist Barbara Grygutis (click her name to see her other public art sculptures)

I will have to return to photograph these….

…. you’ll find pavers containing mathematical and formulaic constants. The formulas reflect the electrical engineering and computer science activities and classes that take place within the surrounding buildings.“

Here’s what Created the Scarlet Path of Light

Silent Sunday’s Post was a red (correction SCARLET)path of light reflected onto the sidewalk at Ohio State University campus. Today I photographed what created the path of light from yesterday’s post.

  “Not only was the RPAC (Recreation Physical Activity Center) a landmark but it is notorious for its “Scarlet Walkway” connection the RPAC to the Physical Activity and Education Services building.  The walkway adds a flow to building that allows students to go between the buildings without having to cause chaos on the sidewalks.  The Scarlet walkway adds continuality to the façade of both buildings.”

Union Station Arch Columbus Ohio

Maura’s Elementary  School Choir sang before the hockey game tonight.  After the Hockey game we came outside to this night time scene.  The Historic Landmark.

Union Station Arch, Arena District Columbus Ohio.

“The lone remnant of the once grand entrance arcade of Columbus Union Station, this relocated arch was designed by Daniel Burnham and now serves as a focal point of the Arena District. Built in 1897” 

Built in 1900 But Looking Brand New

People at Work. Hard work.

NIcholas Karam leads the team at Karam Restoration of Natrona Heights. They can definitely take pride in their excellent work.

You can see from the photo below how  bright and clean looking the brick is now that it’s been restored and new mortar has been put in. They are good at Brick Pointing for sure.

They would arrive before the sun was up and worked in cold temperatures, long dark days.

Today they came and took all the equipment and cleaned up the place. Rinsed the brick again.   It’s a pleasure to pull up to the house and see it looking rejuvenated.  Plus the porch roof won’t fall down from the missing mortar in the columns. I was thinking the house was built in 1920 but went and looked again and it says 1900.

(Now if only my carpenter would finish the wood that needs to be replaced)

Thanks to Nick and the team for a job well done.  See below for the Before and After comparison photographs
