Parkie Pic of the Week: Glass Gate

Now this is an entrance! The first photo is the street-view of this beautiful gate on Euclid Street. I love that the house behind this gate is set back from the road. I also like the flagstone path leading up to the entryway.  It's an interesting juxtaposition of textures and shapes.

Get closer and you see that this gate is formed of huge pieces of blue glass.  I've never seen anything like this and it's a most impressive vision.  I love that they've taken the concept of an ordinary gate and created a unique art piece.

For those of you who live outside the area, University Park and Highland Park  are together called Park Cities. Citizens of these fabled Texas towns  are called "Parkies".  Hence, my weekly fun feature which I call "Parkie Pic of the Week" in which I like to highlight an unusual or spectacular feature of my neighborhood.
