Homes of the Greater Des Moines Area

Texture and detailing of a black wood door.

As years pass and I get better at navigating Des Moines, I have become familiar with homes throughout the city that scratch my architectural itch. Since I view these homes in passing, I set out to walk their neighborhoods and capture details that I could only appreciate up-close. Colors, textures and shapes that make them unique and add to the splendor of the city.
