Architectural Inspirations

For the past month, I've been walking all over Santa Barbara during my lunch break. I've been fascinated by the architecture and decided to go back to some of my favorite places with my camera. Here are a few of the place I photographed today:This is Jimmy's Chinese Restaurant. It is a historic landmark and is about to undergo renovation. I LOVE the colors and hope they don't change it.This is a wall at the Historical Museum. I love the layers of decaying color and texture next to the new window shutter. This is a restored bedroom at the Presidio where the Spanish soldiers slept. Every single brick used in the construction of this building were made by hand and baked in the sun.
