Funky boxes

The low buildings of Bonifacio High Street, with upscale shops on the first floor and offices on the second floor, remind me of modern, artsy gift boxes. I really like them.

A message for City Daily Photo bloggers:
Firstly, the simpler announcement—our December 1 theme is Waiting. Secondly, there's a poll of sorts and a discussion going on in the blog authors' forum about what our January 1, 2010 theme will be. Traditionally, the theme for the first day of the year has been the Best of the Past Year but there are now suggestions to move the date for the Best theme and have a different theme for January 1. Please vote and/or join the discussion and help spread the word. Demosthenes and others would like to hear our views about it.

Artsy is good! Palm trees are good!

You're right, they do look like boxes. And probably very expensive boxes too.

cela fait penser au musée des arts premieres à Paris de l'architecte Jean Nouvel

"Petites belles très étroites
Petites boîtes faites en ticky-tacky
Petites boîtes, petites boîtes
Petites boîtes toutes pareilles
Y a des rouges, des violettes
Et des vertes très coquettes
Elles sont toutes faites en ticky-tacky
Elles sont toutes toutes pareilles"

I love these buildings. They look modern and fun.
Good grief Hilda! Thanks for the reminder on December's theme. I'd forgotten all about it. I guess I was "waiting" till the last minute. I'll hop over and check out the discussion too.

Nice design!

I like the looks of this shopping center. I bet there are some nice stores there!

Jacob said...

I like these a lot, perhaps because they are all different. So many of our malls and strip malls look alike.

I missed this last night because my Internet connection just disappears for hours ...
