Looking Up

Once the snow and ice cleared from the ground (okay, I know that was a long time ago), my experience of walking through town changed significantly.  I started looking up instead of just watching the ground in front of me.  I was surprised to see things that I’d never noticed during the winter.

For example, the architectural details on the upper stories of this unfinished building on Kestučio street.

 

or the architectural details on any number of old buildings.

 

During the winter, I hadn't noticed the unobstrusive modern addition to the top floors of the Kaunas Hotel.

 

Even in the winter, it was impossible to miss this rather ugly addition to a renovated building on Laisvės Alėja
