Calle Principal

This is a quick shot
I grabbed while stopped at a red light one day.
It is the corner of Franklin and Calle Principal
in downtown Monterey, CA.
The building on the left,
facing Franklin Street,
is an older building,
probably close to one hundred years old,
even though it now 'boasts'
a Subway shop on the corner.
The building on the right is new construction.
I'm sure city codes
are the main thing that drove
decisions about the
appearance of the edifice;
but I am appreciative
of the fine aesthetic
that was maintained
by designing and building
the new facade
to stand comfortably
next to the old one.
