Gold and Silver


Whenever I see a different color reflected 
from the Federal Court House, I end up walking around, 
my eyes gazing upward, looking for a new angle.
It's the same ol' building I've frequently posted pictures
of over the years, but it's beauty fascinates me.


And Saturday was no different. 
Its limestone facade glowed in the gold
and silver lights reflected onto it 
by the windows of nearby office buildings.
I was smitten. and wandered around it
enthralled by its luminescence.

Ah, thank you, Alison. Last week I bought the DVD of the Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren. I brought it home only to find the disc had been stolen. The movie is the story of an eldery Jewish woman's efforts to have Klimt's portrait of her aunt, stolen by the Nazis, returned to her family. So ... the music fits the way I felt when I saw the silver and gold light on the courthouse and reminds me of this story.

It does look pretty in this light.
