Studio Door

I found this door into a stained glass artist's studio in a rather gritty area of town but I like that they still put an effort into a cool copper planter and a couple of little trees. Maybe that huge light keeps the vandals away!

Artists are often the ones to do the urban trailblazing. They find the down-and-out places that are cheap, fix them up, and then the cool and eventually the mainstream follow. Wouldn't it be good if that happened here?

I like the planter!

That cooper planter is great, I want one... A huge light would be needed to fight against cooper thiefs.

Jack's probably right, this gritty part of town might be in the in place in a very few years.
I love how copper turns green with verdigris when it weathers. Thieves probably won't know it's copper, but if that big light is controlled by a motion sensor, they won't hang around long enough to find out.
Very nice choice for a photo. Lots of food for thought here.

Love that planter. The color of the building really sets them off.

they've turned gritty into welcoming.

That's an interesting entrance way there Red, I think Jack's right, one day this will be 'the cool place' to come for your stained glass art!
