US Post Office - Bowling Green, Florida

4702 Central Avenue - I took an overview picture of this building as well but it ended up being unfocused (and not in figurative, lacking artistic direction kind of way but actually blurry).

Mod House - Palm Springs, California

So many things to love about this mid-century home but the thing that really sucked me in was the great front lawn.  The geometric shapes of varying gravel and grass (plus those fantastic planters on sticks) create a look that thrills me.

Building - Columbus, Ohio

2366 Kenny Road - Circa 1910.  While this building still shows up on Google street view, it is no longer visible in the Satellite view leading me to believe it's been demolished.  I'm not sure what this building originally was.  It kind of has the look of a school but due to its proximity to rail lines perhaps it was a factory or warehouse of some kind.  Even in the advanced stages of decay here (from May 2009) it still displays a beauty rarely seen in newer structures.

34 North Sandusky Street - Circa 1920.

Edwards-Macy - Lakeland, Florida

120 East Main Street - At a glance this building seems more than usually plain but upon closer examination subtle details present themselves to reveal something more interesting.  The angled detail around the upper portion of the building is actually three-dimensional.  The beveled front display windows add some interest at ground level.

Eastern Greek Orthodox Church - Springfield, Ohio

1127 East High Street - Circa 1908.  I would assume that this was originally one of the grand High Street homes before being purchased and used for religious purposes.
