Pride in Workmanship…

You know? There is alot of awesome architecture around Austin, Texas and what I guess you would call the “I-35 Corridor. But take a closer look at the photograph below.

When I saw this all I could say was “Really?”… I wonder what happened. Either the shorter people called in sick or maybe a shift in the earth’s crust?

I understand there is a fine line to what can be considered ‘artistic license’ – is that what that is?

Can you imagine running down this fire escape with a railing like that?

And I wonder if the guys were a little tired one day laying brick what these windows may look like?

And lastley I don’t think the train would last very long if these tracks were laid out like that railing, right?

Take pride in what you do. Be the best you can be. Take the time, ALL of the time, to do it right the first time. Just something I saw that made me think.

Peace, Love, and Straight Lines,

    Interesting railing. It makes you wonder what was on their mind.

    They just don’t make buildings like they used to. That’s why I love photographing old ones where so much time and effort went into every detail. Great pics as always!
