LOOKING at YESTERDAY, NOW!! (057/365 DAYS, 3.0)

I got home in a state of utter exhaustion after my day's work 
and slept from 4 to 7 pm... 
To make a story short, 
Yesterday, 
I felt it was strange that my Monday seemed so "normal", 
busy but no glitch, 
almost too easy. 
That's because this week's special is, 
Monday is happening on Tuesday!!! 
A big workload to deal with, 
a disappointing weather as we were told we'd have some sun 
and I had been planning some experiments 
which required the sun who was a no show 
until a very weak appearance by the end of the day... 
To top it all off, 
a reunion after lunch... 
I almost dozed off!!! 
Almost... 
I'm used to moving after lunch, 
not sitting on my ass... 
So let's just say I went straight home afterwards, 
still annoyed I couldn't take the pictures I wanted. 
A weak gleam of light caught a patch of color in this ever present greyness 
and I looked up. 


It is not the first time I take pics on that block 
but I took another angle at it today. 
The tale of the Two Towers
If you look at the picture above, 
you'll notice an architectural detail mimicking a tower on each side of this block. 
The closest here is functional as it holds some windows, 
while the other one is [presumably] just for show.


Still, 
it gives some character from a century ago, 
appearing sophisticated. 


There are a few signs of wear-and-tear on these buildings, 
and it'd be a shame if it all went to sh%t...


It may be just for show, 
but I see it daily and always like seeing it there, 
trying to imagine what the folks were like a century ago, 
possibly some bourgeois-type... 
Nowadays, 
the district seems to be going through some revival 
but it leaves hardly any room for history.


Looking at the texture of the past here. 
Might as well take a good look at it now 
before it might disappear...

  1. Great shot, the first one had me fooled for a moment - at first glance I thought it was a fancy drill

    1. That would be an odd drill indeed,
      and a gigantic one at that!!!
      :D~

  2. It looks like something from a fairy tale. I think Rapunzel should be up there 'letting her hair down'!
