tennyson street details

Today, I went out in search of architectural details that try to capture the essence of a place. My subject was Tennyson Street in northwest Denver. It is the main retail corridor of the Berkeley neighborhood and has changed a lot over the past ten years. When I first visited about fifteen years ago, the street looked tired – filled with musty old shops and lacking vibrancy.

Like some of the city’s more well known former tramway (street car) commercial districts, Tennyson Street is coming alive again. Today is it as a vibrant blend of old and new, a bit shabby and a bit slick.

    Mel,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and nominating me for the Leibster Award. I’m happy you liked the photos. If you need to know much about architecture to appreciate my blog, I’m doing it wrong. I’ll drop by your spot again this weekend to follow up on the ten questions. Cheers!

    I am enjoying checking in to see your photos. I don’t know much about architecture, but you write in a way that is still easy for me to follow and I might even comment on the buildings one day.
    Keep up the great blogging!
    Mel
