March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

City Daily Photo Theme Day: Glass


This photo is from a newer building of a well known company built in a retro style including the glass block wall above.  Tomorrow I'll show the rest of the photo revealing which company it is.

In the meantime, be sure to check out how all the participating City Daily Photo blogs around the world approached this month's theme of Glass by clicking on the link below:

Love the juxtaposition of the glass and the palms.

Like Jilly, I love the combination of the glass blocks and the palms. I think it's a great idea for a bathroom! ;D

Lovely choice for theme day!

I've always liked seeing those glass blocks used in construction. They let in light and add wonderful distortions to objects seen through them. Great choice for theme day.

It is very retro and strange to think it's new.

Very nicely captured and of course the retro glass wall is a treat to see. Thanks for visiting my blog today.

I like how you captured the sparkle and light on the glass. I was trying to figure out what company it is - Starbuck's perhaps? Doesn't seem like their interior style though.

Sally said...

That is really striking.

I love these glass blocks. So glad McD's used them in their construction.
