Good morning from a very cool Hastings morning.

Another week, another challenge by Lens and Pens by Sally. This week is architecture.  Last month on 30th December I did a post on architecture and showed some houses built in the 1920’s down our street.  You can catch it here

So today I have gone for the modern glass buildings at the end of our street.  I have taken quite a few photos of this building as I love the reflections of the sky and other buildings in the glass. Unfortunately it was a bit overcast that day and there is little reflection of the clouds.

This building is on the corner of the our street and the main business district street that runs the length of Hastings.  You an see other smaller commercial buildings reflected in the glass.  It is only a 10 minute walk into the CBD from our house which is great.  We have a very minimal bus system as it is easy to get anywhere.

Here you can check out some other great blogs in this challenge:|

Good evening from a windy and warm Hastings.

So yet another challenge for you Amanda Lakey.  When I get up in the morning I get my one and only cup of coffee and sit down to read blogs and the news online and then do the crosswords and trivia questions.  After that  I go for a walk.  By reading the other blogs I then have an idea what to concentrate on.  This morning I read about this challenge that I haven’t taken part in.

A Lingering Look At Windows:  Week 1

So I went on the prowl for some interesting windows.  We have plenty here as we have so many different architectural styles.  Today I just focused on the lead light windows from the houses built around about the end of the  19th Century to the early part of last century when lead light was totally the trend.  I love them and think it really adds to the character of the property as well as dating them.

Anyway it is now evening and as we only have one TV I tend to sit on the computer and go through my photos and edit them. I can’t stand Coronation Street which my husband loves.

Here is the same window from a different period but just as interesting with two different reflections.

It was just a matter of moving a couple of feet.

Here is another great blog to look at as well.
