I Heart Pretty Facades.

I cannot remember the last time I have nothing in the works for a post. I seemed to be always lagging behind posting travel photos. Well, lookie here. I have nothing, nada, zilch, no travel photos left. I must not be travelling anymore. I'm finally caught up.

My next travel is in a few months which will last a month long, so rest assured that this blog will have lotsa photos to show given my pathological shooter tendencies.

In the meantime, I ransacked my archives and leafed through the albums. I always take more photos than necessary anyway, and there are shots I've always wanted to share. Like these:

Eleven months ago I took these pictures while driving home (I'm the passenger) from a day in the city. Aren't these gorgeous? The facades look very inviting. I'd look to take a quick peek at the interiors, wouldn't you?

Nice, colorful crisp photos! One of my favorite SF websites is http://sf.curbed.com/. They feature homes that are on the market and often have lots of interior photos. Love drooling over them.

A very enjoyable series of facades, beautiful images indeed.
I also take more photos than necessary, Maria, even more photos of the same scene!

Wow lovely facades! So elegant.

I hate it when I lag behind in posting about my trips. But I know that you know it takes forever to sort through tons of pictures, upload them on FB & Flickr then find the time to sit down to compose an appropriate narrative about the travels. LOL

But we love doing it, don't we? I meant, the traveling and the posting! :D
