~ This Saturday's Theme is Architecture ~




Theme: Architecture ** Become a Photo Hunter ** View Blogroll


When I learned of this week's theme I immediately thought of this picture taken last summer. I love the architecture of this building. It was taken for the Mountain Shadow Rider's scavanger hunt. I needed to find a red building. It's funny how things work out. This is where we did all the paper work to buy our house.

It is red - look how tiny you & your bike appear up next to it! =)

That's a very cool building.

srp said...

I knew it had to have a bike in it. (wink) Is it brick or some sort of adobe? I love the arches mixed with the pointed angles.. very interesting and most unusual.

maiylah said...

interesting building!
wonderful find!

marianne said...

what a unique building - great photo and wonderful example of architecture.

Bongga Mom said...

Nice building, and nice bike! My husband is mad about bikes, owns a Triumph Bonneville and cares for it like it was his fourth child. I on the other hand cannot turn my head when riding a bicycle without almost crashing it.

Linda said...

That is quite the multiple purpose picture you have there! Great looking building and great looking biker in front of it!

ribbiticus said...

GoofyJ said...

Gattina said...

It looks very special this building and of course (he, he) there is also a motorcycle, how is that possible ?? If I had taken that picture you would find a cat sitting in front of the building !

I love the lines of that building. Just shows you that the more modern architecture can be just as good as older.

jennyr said...

Connie said...

That is just a very fun looking building.

Take care,
Connie
My photo is up.

That's a remarkable red building. I like it better 'coz you were there to make the shot more interesting.

Thanks for visiting me earlier. I appreciate it. Take care!

Daisy said...

I always have to check out your Photo Hunters picture just to see if you could incorporate your fabulous bike. And I am not disappointed! I am trying to figure out if I can trick out my stroller to look cool like yer bike.

What a cool photo, Betty. What really makes it interesting is you on your bike. It gives the building dimension. Have a great weekend! Blessings

Lazy Daisy said...

Wow, impressive picture. I was wondering how you were going to get your motorcycle in it! (ha!) Great choice!

Amy in NY said...

Very unique building, especially the color. THanks for sharing.

Those biker scavenger hunts sound like SO much fun! I keep trying to encourage my hubby to get involved in one! He has several friends that do them and I just think he would enjoy it SO much!

I love that building... what fabulous lines it has! Excellent choice for today's theme! :)

This building looks a little more modern than most I have seen this morning! So, did you win the scavenger hunt? My photo is up!

PastorMac's Ann said...

Too cool! Love that color. Bet nobody has any problems finding this place. Great choice for The Hunt!

eija said...

Heh... my first thought when seeing the photo was "oh, it's so red!" and then I read that it was supposed to be that :D Yeah - I don't like red... But the shapes are great!

Pamela said...

that picture is very eye catching (well it has to be with you in it)
but I mean the shapes and movement of the building going away from you

Jose said...

I love how you are able to include your passion for riding in many of your pictures, they are double winners in my book. Keep it up.

Lux said...

That's a gorgeous building - very unusual!

Laurie & Chris said...

It's funny how you see the new theme for the week and remember a certain photo. That has happened to us a couple times. Great photo. Have a good weekend.

I'm fixin' to start working on my Southern Riders' scavenger hunt.

We had beautiful weather down here in the south today (low 70's). My wife and I had an excellent ride and day. I posted about it on my blog.

If you like brick, you'll love mine, and it's in a great place to take your bike if you like a long ride.
