My friend Elizabeth lives in a building in New York that was built around 1910. I was fascinated by the crown moldings inside her apartment -
Nobody in Atlanta has crown moldings like that. I also was fascinated by the world right outside her back window.
Someone in New York is probably saying, "It's a fire escape. What's the big deal?" Living in the suburbs of Atlanta, I am fascinated by them. I love how they look - and why don't we put them on buildings anymore?
I even thought the color gradation of the rust on this pipe was amazing -
I slept on Elizabeth's couch right next to the window and one morning heard two guys talking to each other from their respective apartment windows. I wish I had caught it on camera. Her backyard is so "Rear Window".
