BBW 30-Day Photo Challenge – Day 14: Architecture

18 Apr

Today’s word is ‘Architecture,’ and when I think of this I think of old and new, and how architecture serves a number of functions, one of which is to sometimes disguise ugly aspects of functionality that is required of a structure.

My ‘Architecture’ Photo

In this shot, the white patterns are used to hide the top of the elevator structure in a rooftop garden.

The Mica Building – Singapore

05 Nov

A popular picture, this works when it is taken well… and this is a nicely cropped shot.

Temple in Singapore

03 Nov

It’s a touch washed out, but it makes the gods on this Hindu temple entrance seem more dramatic.

One of those shots where the architecture just screams of style, and days gone by. Love it!

Optical Illusion

Do you see the light recessed into the ceiling or hanging from the ceiling? Another great shot!

Potsdamer Roof
