Architectural Detail

Each year, when we go for a photo walk through historic Roswell, the group selects a few themes for the day.

This year, we picked:

  1. The color red
  2. Flowers and nature
  3. Abstracts
  4. Architectural detail

I walked past this one home on Canton Street where the leaded-glass window caught my eye and then, I noticed all the patterns of the shingles along the roof around it.  The repeating pattern and detail are very interesting but, it may be the irregularity of the pieces that I found most appealing.  While the shapes all follow the pattern, you can also see how the lines are not all perfectly straight.  Some of the shingles are a little crooked or slightly different sizes.  The window does not sit perfectly in the casing but everything seems to be as it should be.  I think this just shows the age and reminds me of how much work it must have taken to hand cut and position each piece of this house.
