Pretty Decatur

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

Today, Av and I went to Huntsville (I got a new camera!!) and Decatur, Alabama.

While we were in Decatur, we stopped in for a few minutes at the archives building there on Bank Street. I didn't take any pictures (if you have a purse, they ask you to leave it in a locker in the building foyer) but wish I could have, because the building used to be a bank and inside there is a *huge* safe that's so big you could practically drive a car in! After we finished looking through some microfilm, we drove through the Bank Street Historic District there, where some of the most beautiful homes are.

It was overcast so the pictures aren't as bright as I wish, but the houses still came out amazing:

I love the blue and green colors together on this home - so different:

The owner of this home has a collection going on in their side yard:
