More of Downtown

Art installation on a wall of Boise City Hall. The old building in the center is a photo of the old City Hall.

Painted brick sign for an import store.

Great place to hang out and people-watch. Eclectic.

"Hopper-esque" view. Check out this.

More public art.

Love to know more about your city!
I agree with you, that Coffee House looks a nice place "to hang out and people-watch". I wish I could be there with you...

Yes! That building is really a "Hopper-esque" view. Btw, love so much Edward Hopper!

How lucky to live in such artistic surroundings, Ms.M.
Anon makes a movie from Hopper's windows. What a wordsmith!

Was Hopper in Boise? I think of him as an east coast guy, but I don't know a thing.

It seems very charming.

Ms M said...

Thank you, Anon, for your poetic observations. xxoo

Sonia: It would be lovely to meet you for coffee at the Flying M. I love Edward Hopper, too. He's one of my favorite artists. Here's a little more info about Boise:,_Idaho

Dive: There are some artistic aspects amid the many bland, beige buildings. Anon is, indeed, a splendid wordsmith. :)

Petrea: Hopper was not ever in Boise, to my knowledge. He was, as you said, an East Coast guy. My photo of the windows was inspired by his paintings of windows in NYC.

Margaret: There are some charming parts of downtown Boise, and some wonderful bungalows in Boise's North End.

I'll imagine us having a lovely coffee and chat together at the Flying M, Ms M.

That is a lovely thought, Shell! You'd enjoy it. They have a little gift shop inside with unique, hand-made items.
