Bits And Pieces

One more shot of the Prescott Fine Arts building which started out in life as the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. As you can tell, I am very fond of this old building in spite of having it's steeple removed to prevent lightening strikes.

It sure looks pretty against the blue AZ sky.

Very interesting (and dizzying!) angle Judy. Yes, I can see why you love it...it's beautiful.

One would think that they could have put a lighting rod or something, other than removing the steeple. Even with the steeple removed, it must be the tallest structure around.

Beautiful shot Judy!

A fine building for the Fine Arts! Great composition, Judy.

Given my predilections, I'm glad to see the building, which is indeed beautiful, has been put to good use.

Re your question on Ocala: Belk is a very nice department store, with excellent quality merchandise at good prices...and lots of good sales! It's a chain located primarily in the southeastern U.S.

I would assume that the bell towers and height of most churches tend to draw the eye upward to the sky...definitely what happened in this photo!

Great shot!

It is a building worth several photos. I really like this angle.

The rose window looks amazing.

Another 1890's construction designed by Frank G Parker (related). He is credited for this work on the bronze sign in front of this building now.
