My New Fave

I have a new favorite website: Curious Places. It’s a photoblog of oddly wonderful structures or decorative schemes.

Here are a few I particularly like.

Chaplin Court – a Storybook court commissioned by Charlie Chaplin. I want one just like it in my back yard.

Casina delle Civette – very nice. I especially like the rounded arches.

Wat Sampran Dragon Temple – Dragon! Temple! Temple with all dragons on it!

Meanwhile today, I’m posting at Fatal Foodies about tuna noodle casserole, which is almost as wonderful as dragons, plus you can eat it.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What architectural detail particularly charms your main character?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Oooh, I have some good ones in my SF story, but I can’t share them with you yet. Them’s the rules. The less said about a work in progress, the better!

      Well, okay, then. Rules is rules, I guess. I won’t tell you about my new story, “Holly Jahangiri is selfish about her details, and is sentenced to penal servitude cleaning pratty stables”.

    Hi Marian
    Can’t say what my characters like as much as what they don’t like. LOL Dark dungeons comes to mind.

      Yeah, dark dungeons lack that certain indefinable air of comfort…. 😉
