Pratt Street


Pratt Street in downtown Hartford is a short street with a mix of new and old buildings,
some in good shape and some challenged.  I like this old building and the art nouveau street lamps.

My travels are scheduled to last five more days.  Posts are scheduled for every
day while I am away, and I have been updating them to include photos from Russia.

While we are on the subject of lovely old buildings, 
here is a handsome wooden building with wonderful ornamentation, in Uglich.

The Hartford shot is pure elegance. The other one is impressive but would be a nightmare to paint!

There's some very interesting architecture there in Hartford. I like the composition of your first picture. We seem to have a lot more "challenged" buildings here in New London. I find them all very interesting though.

Terrific angle for the first shot, Jack, and I like the contrasts with the second shot.

You're finding wonderful shots in Russia to complement your U.S. posts. Very nice! Today's wooden building is pretty amazing.
