  Thanks Jeanine and Esther!

No real storey Esther... we were out looking for a special tire for our 5th (we had one that was separating)... and this new small office building was right behind the tire shop we stopped at... It had two of these big checked walls... I thought it was rather lovely and inventive!

  Ah Joan, you have hit my Achilles heel. I'm a sucker for bold graphic design and you've captured a beauty.

  Thanks so much Dale, Esther, Debbie and Jodi! I appreciate your comments! I was really attracted to this building (It's actually a shop of some sort with 3 large Garage doors on one side, and the office in the front. I loved the fact that they took the effort to make a wonderful statement for their work environment!!

Dale... I took extra care to ensure the every was level both horizontally and vertically.... I take it I did good??? LOL!!

  Oh. Is this ever neat...and it's a bit of an illusion to boot when we get to the top portion. I think there is a ledge but wouldn't say for certain! Great image and color and lines Joan! -Laura :)
