Sunday, Carey and I headed out to explore and make some photographs in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver. Carey made some images that he also shared on his website. This neighborhood has some really old buildings and is close to Downtown. After parking the car, we headed along Welton Street. The first colorful building we encountered was this restaurant, that served Caribbean foods.
The Hatter Dashery store across the road has a handsome entrance.
We stopped outside one block of apartments. Looking up, I noticed two dogs looking out from the 3rd or 4th floor balcony.
From a previous visit, I remember that one of the nearby buildings had an interesting wall along the parking area. I headed there but discovered that the wall had been repainted — that would be the beige wall on the left had edge of the following image. Take a look at an image that I made at this location two years ago. However, the back wall on the second floor had an unusual mural.
In the following image, I wanted to make an image that included a passerby walking past the downward facing mural head. We waited a few minutes for a pedestrian who was walking his dog. Unfortunately, he headed off in a different direction. There was no one else nearby… except for the two of us.
Along the wall of the Media Center building, is a wall with mosaic and mirror tiled feature. I always seem to make and image of the reflections in the mirror tiles. So here is another.
Several homes along the street have immaculately groomed, small yards. This is one example.
There is one building that looks like is served as a gas station during the 1950’s. The gas pumps are long gone, but the building looks like it is awaiting restoration or another owner.
While making one image, Carey hid behind a lamp pole. I made several images of him looking out from behind the pole. Maneuvering around, I think this was the best angle before he noticed me and we headed down the street!
Our final stop, was the “Rolling Pin Bakery”.
We enjoyed a croissant and coffee for lunch, talking about photography and software. Along the wall behind the serving counter is this interesting collection of rolling pins mounted to the wall.
We enjoyed the photowalk and look forward to more in the future.
