Iron Work

While walking home yesterday I snapped some dramatic looking photos of the beautiful ironwork gate surrounded the Cosmos Club in Dupont.
Aren't the finials really elegant? The ironwork is so fluid: a true art form!

So fancy and haunting! I love it! Like the old mansions in New Orleans. You find the best places on your walks!

Fantastic. The Cosmos Club has a great tour on their website. Check the iron work around the main entrance. Looks like one of those doorways I'm not worthy of entering ;^)

Stefan-If you've never been inside the Cosmos Club, I'll have to take you for a cocktail and tour sometime.
