A Daytona Ghost
Daytona Beach, up until one point in the twentieth century, was not called Daytona Beach. It was called Daytona.
Daytona, up until some point in the twentieth century, was just like any other small town. It had its rich folks, its poor folks, its workers, its keepers and its lazybums. The town was laid out like any other town - business district in the center, then the large, fancy houses along the prefferred thoroughfares, and then a ring of middle class houses, and a clump of small, workers houses near wherever jobs were to be had.
This lovely building is a ghost. A ghost of what Daytona was, and is not, and yet still is - in a mangled, hard to imagine sort of way. This building is a relic from the days of when Daytona was once a small town, just like any other small town in the US. It wasn't really known for anything spectacular - you had to cross the Halifax River to get to a beach - mosquitoes would eat you alive at night, and people built themselves the nicest houses they could.
Daytona is no longer a small town, but you can find bits of when it was a small town if you look hard enough. Some aren't that hard to find. This lovely house, the Blodgett house of 1896, sits right on US-1 and you can find another lovely, but uncared for Victorian up a few blocks, past what was once the center old Daytona. There are still hotels that go back to the teens and twenties - amazingly untouched by developers looking to build 'luxury condos' - probably only because they weren't on the river front. The riverfront and beachfront is a different story, as is always the case in Florida. It faces the prospect of disappearing under high rise 'luxury waterfront condominiums' gleaming in their eyes. Real estate can be a real killer sometimes.
Square Tower House-Mesa Verde NP
Square Tower House of the cliff dwellers in Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado. We arrived at the park in mid-afternoon, but we were lucky to get to some of the best sites that were illuminated by the afternoon sun. This was the first of those. July 2011, Nikon D300.
