I get to see a lot of the city; Realtors can log hundreds of miles a week over the entire Dayton area. We also become good at seeing bits and pieces of buildings and paying close attention to details: An interesting light fixture, a beautiful door, an architectural detail that’s 25 feet above the ground. To us, these are clues to the value, potential appeal, and condition of a property, but on an emotional level, on a daily basis, looking for the little details around us means we get to be delighted and surprised when we take the time to pay attention.
It’s with this in mind that DaytonMostMetro.com is starting a new weekly column called “Where Am I?” The DMM contributors will grab a photo of something in the Dayton area: A sculpture, a sign, a gargoyle, or an interesting entryway, little gems around the Dayton area that you might miss if you aren’t paying attention or something lovely that you might take for granted if it’s become so much background.
We invite you to share your guess of the location in the comment space. Then on the following week we’ll give the answer and some information about previous “Where Am I”. Some might be easier than others, but mostly we hope it’s fun and it encourages us to see Dayton as a little more interesting. We also hope you might share your own thoughts, stories, and memories of the places we highlight, whether you are a long time resident, or have just moved into town. DaytonMostMetro.com works best the same way the Dayton Ohio area works best- as a community- each of us contributing and sharing what we know so don’t be shy.
Our first week’s “Where Am I” is this:
