I guess I am what some might call a serial dater. Of architecture and buildings, that is. Design elements and features too.
Whenever I walk I take notice of buildings. Residential and commercial.
I look at the uniqueness of each as well as any similarities. Are there any influences of other structures or styles in evidence? Has a particular one been remodeled? Even remuddled at times as I have labeled some on occasion - you know a mash-up of mixed jobs that have occurred over the years. Almost haphazardly. Seemingly without a specific plan.
I take notice of such things. For obvious curiosity and because I find the practice of observing rather fascinating. Living and learning.
As I walk, I also wonder of the age of the original construction and if there may be clues in evidence of that date and any subsequent alterations. A match made in heaven or some hellish example.
Who am I to say? After all, I am a mere serial dater of such things and while I may opine, it really doesn't make a difference.
