the road to petaluma : Seed Bank

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 20 September 2011 in Architecture and Portfolio.

We're passing through downtown Petaluma. I love this old bank building. We're a little late, so I'm still shooting from the car window time to stop to frame any still shots. :-)

I'm still clicking away with my iphone set to the Hipstamatic App.

Fantastic series, Dulcie - this app produces a lovely nostalgia. The old bank is a classic - well snapped on the fly.

The beautiful lines are nicely accentuated by the wonderful serpentine curves.
Your point of view and tilt seem to add a great feeling of what comes to mind,
a jarring stop at this light, a sense of a topsy turvy world. Beautiful work.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Oh a seed bank - does this mean there will eventually be some growth in the economy?

@Curly: Oh good one, Curly...I LOVE a good pun !!! Thanks. :-)

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

I am sure they are not a seed bank but rather a bank named Seed! The processing only adds to the sense of unreality in the shot! Nicely captured Dulcie! ;-)
