Back to Boston

As much as I loved seeing the Museum of Fine Arts ad deCordova Sculpture Park I also enjoy wandering around towns and cities just to find interesting architecture.  Lisa was very sweet to indulge me and said she enjoyed seeing her home in a new way.  Here are just a few shots from around Harvard Square and Brookline.



I'm sure I looked kind of funny getting into the contortions necessary to capture the reflection in the door.


This building just made me smile.  It looks like a face wearing a pointy hat.


More reflections in the window of the First Unitarian Church.


On to Brookline.  I am amazed by the masonry skill required to care such delicate looking leaves.


Another face, this time in the door.


Here's the church and here's the steeple.  Only thing is I didn't see people.


More gorgeous masonry.

Oh, I'm going to seem a very dumb person concerning his own city, but I can't place the "pointy hat, smiling face" building. I know I've seen it before, but where is it?

My daughter and I always look for faces everywhere. I love that you do that too! :)

Since you mentioned the faces, I think I can see Sesame Street's Bert in that door.

I love doing 'architecture tours'; downtown Chicago is a target-rich environment that way. . .

And, for some weird (and no doubt perverse) reason, your 'pointy-hat-face' building reminded me of this. . .

The pointy hat building is in Harvard Square. The offices of the National Lampoon used to be there when it was run by Harvard students.

I like the pointy hat building. I often sees faces in things like that.
