The glimpse you've given us of this building indicates that it's one of those stately buildings architects seem to have forgotten how to design...

Yup. They don't build 'em like they used to!

A beautiful old building.

I trust Amy, the roller derby queen you showed yesterday, also known as "bad person," never sets foot, or skate, through the doorway into this courthouse.

I like how the door pops among all that grey, and how you captured the business-like briskness of the two men.

Very elegant door:)

Very grand. I just love the matching satchel.

The stone frame of the door is so impressive! It seems indestructible and heavy!The two men seem frail and small..
Are there benches on both sides?..Ü

John said...

Their legs being almost in sync gives a kind of motion to the men.

After a few wonderful days in Boston I've come to the conclusion that you've got some of the best doorways in the world. Nearly every entry begs to be photographed. So glad you capture and post them!

Love this one, the color, the door and the gents moving on with their lives!

Impressive entranceway.

Magnificent!
You have three of my favorite things in this shot: stone, wood, iron.

Great catch of what look like lawyers too. :)

It is a beautiful building. I bet it has high ceilings and old judges portraits on the wall hanging up high.

That looks huge enough for a truck to drive through - it reminds me, for some reason, of some of our fire station doors. The businessmen in their macs add movement and scale to the shot.

An impressive building which I guess is what a courthouse should be. But are those steps as wavy as they appear in the photo?
