This rather interesting building is not a reconstructed ancient Anasazi or Hopi lodge, nor a fine museum of ancient artifacts, but a fine jewelry store on the edge of the Grand Canyon specializing in Indian jewelry:-).
Thank you all so very much for all your wonderful comments and I wish to thank you for taking your time to view my artistic scribblings. Your comments and suggestions are not only deeply appreciated but valued highly.

A jewelry store. I would never believe it. Maybe a museum. Great shot. Thanks for the lesson. Never judge a book by it's cover. Aloha

thanks for bring back memories. I was there a few years ago and this is a wonderful image. They do sell good jewelry there and other things.

That must be the coolest building ever to house a fine jewelry store! The light and stones create some great textures - looks very nice as a b&w!
