Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Indoor Walkways, Hallways, Elevators

My youngest son, Andrew, attends a music school in New York. It was built in the 1920’s and although there have been additions and changes made over the years, its original beauty remains. For Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Indoor Walkways, Hallways, Elevators, I am using photos I took during our recent visit. There is a classic elegance and richness in these old buildings that simply cannot be duplicated.

The architecture is detailed and beautiful. You never know what you’re going to find as you walk down the halls.

Even the staircases are impressive!

This school is truly a work of art. The performance halls are impressive with amazing art work and intricate detail. I’m sure it enriches Andrew’s experience as he continues his music studies.

It’s a Small World

Growing up surrounded by music and finding that there is a song or lyrics to fit every occasion, it’s safe to assume that by my post title, I should have been sharing a fun little Disney video to accompany my photos forĀ Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Small Subjects. Sadly, this is not happening because every video I found was either way too long, having been taped while on the actual ride OR (horror of horrors) the lyrics that people thoughtfully provided were misspelled or grammatically incorrect. I don’t claim to be perfect. I misspell words. I make grammatical errors. But it is a pet peeve of mine and after watching way too many videos with that catchy tune playing, I threw in the towel and admitted defeat. In all that time, I could have shared my photos and been out to lunch!!!.Seriously!
