Architecture images

I've been entangled in domestic maintenance for the last few weeks, but have a few moments now to post some items to this blog.

These pix were taken almost three years ago, and I thought I would share them here. They could be interesting "starts" for a composition in fibre or paint/collage.

As above. Sometimes a figure is just what is needed
to make a photo interesting.

I smiled in recognition when I saw your photos. I, too, have taken photos in several museums with the notion of developing a piece of art from them. After all, an architect spent some time developing the design, so why shouldn't we derive some benefit from that hard work.

We have to take our inspiration where we find it, yes? When something speaks to us, that makes it worth following up, I think. And it's also valuable to ask ourselves what it is about the image that has drawn us in. Contrasting scale, contrast of straight vs. curved, contrast of light and dark, the juxtaposition of the human figure against the architectural, rhythmic grids.... It's all there!
