Back to the Bricks

I think this is an interesting brick pattern up here.



I was used to seeing sidewalks made only from cement before I moved to this part of the country. The sidewalk matches the building.
Trenton is the capital of New Jersey and it's closer to my house than either New York or Philadelphia. When I go to New York I drive to the Trenton train station then ride from there to New York's Penn Station. I took these pictures near the New Jersey capitol building in Trenton.

  2. These are just awesome photos. As I said in the last "red brick" post we don't have a lot of this in Honolulu. They are just awesome to see :)

  3. I like the carvings in the roof in the top picture. Yes, brick sidewalks are very charming and definitely what we're not used to! I remember the day you took these. Great job!

  4. Hello James.The how to compose of the brick of the wall is surely rare. As for the ceiling part of the roof, a carving is taken very precisely. In addition, there is decoration carving to a chimney. On the other hand, the arch part of the entrance is used without processing a stone. It is the special building where deep will comes to of the builder. You really find the superb building, and there is talent to take beautifully. Thank you for distributing a photograph.ruma

  8. They don´t make them like that anymore. Pretty and I love the colour and it´s so nice to see the matching sidewalk.

  9. It's strange that the simple stones are also red. The sculpture on the top is quite interesting, because it must be difficult to sculpt this kind of material;Never seen so much bricks houses at the same time!

  15. Your menu is full of sumptuous pictures! Not worth missing which I do apparently. Anyway, three more days and I'll be temporarily away from the computer.

    I love the intricate design within the triangle of the rooftop and also the Arabian Knight arches down the front verandah entrance.
