Mr. Not So Curious and I are back from a five-week road trip out west. We had a great time and did our usual exploring of cities and small towns. We both love to walk around unique and interesting neighborhoods and this trip provided quite a number of such opportunities.
The cities also provided some interesting vistas, particularly Dallas and Austin. We both noticed a trend — very tall buildings with round “corners”. (Is that an oxymoron? Can corners be round?)
Here’s a couple of photos from Austin.
The building in the middle is also very interesting — not round — but sharp and pointed. Makes for an interesting skyline. Well, except for those buildings on the left.
And here is some images of round buildings from one of my favorite blogs, Design Sponge.
And last but not least, some photos of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. We walked by it on our trip and were amazed. In our own narrow-minded way, we never thought of the Baptists in the forefront of modern architecture. But this church is amazing looking. The reflection is of the older church across the street.
