Thematic Photographic :Orange

This week's theme @ Written is Orange. The Balboa Theatre in San Diego is a perfect example of Orange beauty. I posted a pic of the Balboa before but I think these are a bit better.
Here is some historical info about the building from the theatre's website "Built in 1924, the historic Balboa Theatre was an elegant vaudeville and movie palace in the heart of downtown San Diego. At the time it was a state-of-the-art building that included six storefronts along Fourth Avenue, with 34 offices on the floors above. After a 1934 remodeling, the theatre was reopened as Teatro Balboa, featuring contemporary films from Mexico City and presenting Latin stars to San Diego's increasingly diverse audience. During World War II, the theatre's office space was used by the US Navy. These offices were reconfigured into bachelor quarters for young men waiting to ship out. After the war, the remodeled spaces became single-occupancy housing." There is more to learn so click here.
I invite you to head over to written to check out more orange photographs.

I love orange! The buildings look especially awesome with the blue sky as a backdrop.

I wish you and your family (4 legged members included) a happy Thanksgiving!

i'm an orange fan, too. it's something that started in the 80s for me (don't ask! although i will say i was obsessed w/ the color coral. we'll leave it at that, lol!)

back to the photo- that orange really pops against its compliment blue, doesn't it?

very pretty pics, sealaura.
