Default Things with Wings -- This Wing Doesn't Fly!

Not everything with wings is capable of flight. This new wing of the Hiteon Elementary School about a mile from my home was completed just before school started last year.

Don't ask me how to pronounce "Hiteon". I haven't a clue!

Shot with my Minolta S414.

Thinking out of the box here, I like that

A building can have wings, indeed. Might be a language-dependant thingie, though. I can approve for german - and we know it's "wing" in english. What's with the other languages?

The "wing" of a building. English.
El "ala" de un edificio. Spanish.

The same meaning. Now I want to see that building fly!

Although the shot won't win any contests, I laughed out loud at the sheer creativity.

Way to think out of the "Box" Cal. My guess is Hiteon like Gideon?

Buildings have wings and cathedrals have flying buttresses.
Definitely out of the box thinking.
