Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors ~ Sterling





Once again I took a photo of the historic Sterling Opera House in Derby, Ct. I love this building!

Last month I posted a photo of the cupola of the stately structure for Whimsical Windows, but this is the first time I've taken a photo from behind  the opera house.
The building was constructed in 1889, and the cupola was replaced in February, 2011.
I had a medical appointment the morning that the cupola was raised up onto the building and missed the ceremony and the photo op!

A Whimsical Windows post I wrote on the opera house in July can be read here.

The Sterling is a classic from all angles - I hadn't looked from this vantage point either, so this is a fine view of the (possibly) haunted venue...

Oh, how lovely! I love that inverted brickwork. And the autumn leaves really complement the whole composition - great capture!

the tree branches frame this nicely - though I guess in summer it will be almost completely obscured.

I have seen other pictures of this stately opera house and I agree it is a beauty that must be preserved.

It looks great. I bet there's a wonderful view from up there on the widow's walk! I also like this photo because of the blue sky and the autumn leaves.
