Edgar County Coourthouse

I took this photo a few weeks ago, and kept waiting to show it in hopes I would get back over there and get a better shot, plus more views. I think this is one of the most ornate courthouses I have ever seen. It is located in Paris, Illinois. Enlarge it and see what you think. Oh, be sure and notice the birds!

Lorelei is actually down for a nap; it probably won't last long but any is better than none. I forgot to tell that day before yesterday I put her in her little rocker-seat while I vacuumed and she went to sleep in it before I got done. She only slept about 20-30 minutes but that gives me a few minutes to relax....or get things done. That was all the napping she did that day.

Wow, Rose, it looks like something from Paris, France instead of Illinois. Very grand!

Hugs & kisses to Lorelei for me!

I think you're right, Rose. I've never seen anything this ornate in the States!

Those aren't bird, they're pigeons! ;-) And they're everywhere!

Sure looks like the pigeons are keen about the architecture. Lots of places to perch and do their thing. ;-)

Yes, do get more photos. It really does look something from a different time and place.

Very ornate! I'm always taking photos of steeples, but courthouses are just as interesting and I've seen several neat ones this year. I never seem to get to stop for photos when I see one, however. Frustrating!

Whoa! That really does have the decorations! Sheesh!! But it is beautiful....

Glad that you were able to get a couple things done while the little angel slept! =)

That is a very interesting courthouse with its figure atop holding the scales of justice! Birds love those lofty perches. Little ones do have a way of demanding attention when awake. Hope you're having a good weekend.

Very pretty and ornate! Nice birds! :-D

My grandchildren are too far to see regularly-which gives me more time to myself but less time to see them.
