Numbers game

I got to walk around some old Victorian townhouses today in one of my favorite cities to explore – Wheeling, West Virginia. I’ve posted a number of architectural shots here on my blog in the past that were taken in or around Wheeling as I find it a fascinating and approachable city. It has a rich history and there are a lot of cool old buildings still around in various states of disrepair, which adds to the character, in my opinion.

I snapped away at anything that caught my eye today, focusing on details mostly, and I found after I uploaded my images that I had a few shots of address numbers, which made me think -“a theme!” So I present to you, a short series of numbers. All taken with the Lumix GX1 and Leica 25mm.

    WiP: thanks for sharing this photo-essay; i’ve been to Wheeling a couple of times and thought it was the funkiest place i’ve ever been. very beautiful and waiting for a renaissance…maybe in its glass manufacture… RT

      Funky is an apt description. Downtown seems stuck in the 70’s, while other parts of town seem preserved from even older decades.

    Love this series, excellent! As the locals would say, “I’ve got the Wheeling feeling”.

      Thanks Mike. Ah, the “Wheeling feeling” – I don’t think I’ve had that for a number of years (when I took advantage of West Virginia’s drinking age of 18 :-)). But I am finding it a treasure trove of photo subjects, so maybe the “feeling” will return.
