Foto Friday: ZaZa Galore

The ZaZa Hotel, lurking in the background on the left, has saved you from a truly dire title[1]. Here is an unlucky Foto Friday (which, luckily, was not posted on Friday).

Mecom-Rockwell Fountain and Colonnade
Houston, October 2007

According to this site, the columns were once part of the Miller Theatre [sic], "[a] classic Doric proscenium structure...[that] featured 20 Corinthian columns on either side of the stage." This opened in 1923. (NOTE: A Doric structure with Corinthian columns? How gauche! But they're not Corinthian -- not enough gunk on them.)

And then the Sixties were at our throats, and the present structure -- which looks like a hangar for diplodocuses, guarded by the annoyed, fossilized remains of a prehistoric Phyllis Diller -- was foisted upon the world.

I shall really have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find FFs from now on, as I don't have much scanned that is presentable, and I haven't been able to get my most recent stuff developed (have to send it to Kansas). Do try to endure.

[1] If lemonade is made from lemons, what is colonnade made from? :::::::::::::::::::
