From me, a non-sequiter as usual, this one from a book of color theory I saw yesterday. It's written by an art teacher who asks each student of his to cover a piece of paper with blotches of color that please them in combinations of twos and threes.

"In my studies of subjective color, I have found that . . . some individuals incline towrds crisp and sharply bounded color areas, others to interpenetrating or blurred and haphazard patches. Individuals of the latter kind are not given to clear and simple thinking. They may be quite emotional and sentimentally disposed."

p13 Johannes Itten - the art of color -- 1928


Thank you for sharing! I'd love to see a close-up of the red door - maybe the texture and variation in the panes - was it red glass? Beautiful as always Cassie! Have a great weekend out in the cold!


Great photo and great quote, Cassie.


Same thing Colleen said~ great photo and love the quote.


They may be common place in NY but they look a little exotic to me. Another great photo along with another thought provoking quote.


I'm enjoying your pics very much...would be a neat series to frame and display. Thanks for sharing them!


I especially like your blog on Saturdays -- lovely photo and quote.


I love old buildings. Something about the detail work, beautigul, even when "forgotten" and neglected. Great photo, as always.
