It's not just the devil that's in the details. There's beauty in cornices, lampposts and dormer windows!
Earlier this month, photographer John Hart led a small group of folks on an architectural photography walking tour of the Upper West Side. With his guidance, they learned to train their eyes on the details hidden within the buildings surrounding us.
One member of the tour, blogger Gotham Girl, shared her photos. We're no experts, but we'd say she was a quick study on how the camera brings out the unexpected beauty of our bricks-and-mortar resources. In the photo at right -- the landmark-in-waiting Level Club, 253 West 73rd Street -- we adore how the metal tracery atop the sculpted column plays on the soft beige brick.
Thank you, Gotham Girl, for sharing your individual perspective on the West Side!
