Children of Earth and Sun

- Buildings, too, are children of Earth and Sun.
Frank Lloyd Wright

I shot these photographs a few months ago, on a beautiful Sunday morning. The Marin County Civic Center was Frank Lloyd Wright's last and 770th commission.

I've visited a couple of times, and with each visit I see more clearly how the building's colors disappear into the landscape of Marin's golds, ambers, and blues. The building is showing signs of wear, which I think makes it even more beautiful. See some really cool photos of the building circa 1957 here and here.
