LIGHT. We can't have enough of it. When I look at this building, I am not concerned with the children who attend school here. Instead, I imagine the possibilities of turning this place into a wonderful home--one that has huge windows that allow the natural sunlight in to brighten the interior. The people who must work here every day are lucky I believe. There are very few buildings like this one in the area that I know of and I wonder a great deal about its creation. Who was the architect? What was its original purpose? When was it built? Where else can I find such wonderful buildings with similar windows? Why can't I be rich? I'd buy the building, gut the inside and take full advantage of the light from the windows and even devote a section of the building to my very own greenhouse. To have such a beautiful piece of utilitarian architecture used as a school for children is such a WASTE. They cannot appreciate it in any way shape or form. I think that the next time I see this building, I will go up to the walls, touch the stonework, find a way to get inside and photograph the light streaming in from the windows. What do you think?
