mattcallow's moody photograph in this entry sent me looking for architect H.H. Richardson on the Internet, and ended up at his wikipedia entry. It's a fairly limited article, but it is accompanied by a decent collection of recent public domain photographs of his buildings-- none of them, alas, as evocative as Matt's photo of a lesser (but still interesting) building by one of Richardson's comtemporaries.
With luck, it might cloud up again today. The eastern sky currently displays some clouds which are flushing a lurid pink as dawn approaches. I might wake to the pleasant sound of rain again. I always appreciate it more when it's been gone for a couple of days.
