Pink Curtain

Pink Curtain Art Deco The colors and the exotic look on 12th Street caught my attention as I was entering Wells Fargo Bank the other morning. This is one of the downtown buildings that was rebuild in 1923 after Astoria's big fire of December 1922.

An eye catching curtain!

The first is a far more interesting image; the second is too busy and the main subject is de-emphasized.

I prefer the first one too but it's good to see the second one. Puts us in situ.

I had to use Google street view to place the building exactly; that's the old Owl Drug Store.

Although the first image follows all the rules of photography (framing and isolating the subject, etc.), I find the second more engaging. It shows the whole building and the cars show activity.

I just found your blog a few days ago and have truly enjoyed the walk down memory lane. Thank you!

Beautiful details on this somehow strange façade.
