Do You See One Building Or Two?

My first glance at this photo today, I saw one building with great detail, lines and tan brickwork. Then it looks like there was an addition to that building. It has tan brickwork, square windows shaped around the original building, and them made it blend together in sort of an old versus new mesh. A bit odd in the contrasts between the two, but overall it works together. Now look at the window from the top down, third row on the right. There is a top portion of a window sticking out of the roof. Now I see it, those are two buildings, two separate buildings, not one. hahaha! The build with the square windows is a Qwest building, I'm not sure what the building in the front is. Both are located in downtown St Paul around Rice Park.

Great photos!!! We're impressed.
I like photos like this-city, streets scenes. That's our first visit and we are going to visit you again and again.
Thank for adding us for your top 5 list. We are proud. But our city call Wroclaw not Rowclaw ;)))

Nice shot. It works for me either as one building or two and nobody would know the difference.

Very effective. On the portal, it does look like one building.

Nice combination of the two buildings. Your blog is making me curious of Minnesota, maybe I'll get there one summer...
