Thanks, Alex. I know these aren't exciting photos for my Panoramio friends to see, but while I was editing my pictures, I saw some good ones of Art Deco buildings at Napier, New Zealand. I checked Panoramio and saw that there are photos of Napier's buildings, including some good ones. But (though it sounds immodest) I thought I could increase the quality level by adding a few more!

Cheers, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn, I agree with you. The structure looks very nice. And I think a good photo of a building is always a pleasure. In this case I like the section of the coloumns. Together with a a good colour combination they give a good impression of this style. I also like the parking meter as a contrast to the past times. I guess this building is from that time. Very good straight lines who show the follower of the art noveau.

Who says architecture is boring? Its (almost) a pleasure to put money in the parkingmeter so you can take a longer closer look. Fine shot! Gr, Ed.

I'm glad you have enjoyed this, Carsten and Ed. We were there on a Sunday and didn't have to put money in the meter across the street but, yes, it would have been worth it. The building is so crisp and clean looking! (It is now some kind of medical building, I believe). Greetings, Marilyn
