Let's see your Architecture photos that you took this week. It would be nice to see some from the couple of dormant members we haven't heard from in a couple of weeks ;)

Also thought about offering this one, because I like the shapes, but my final choice won because I think it tells a bit of a story.

I was a bit unexcited by the shots I did take this week - an awful lot of standing on the ground and looking up. By the time I came up with an idea for something a bit different, it was too late :) I'll see if I can get the shots I want next week, and put them into my Scrapbook.

I think I like the corners one better, personally. It has a really good balance of elements, to my eye.

I like it better visually, too, but I was a bit "meh, yet another crane-the-neck shot" about it in the end. There were too many like that in my rejects folder :)

I didn't end up photographing the building I wanted to this weekend so I'm hoping to get out there tomorrow when I'm at uni and post it up then.

I like Ike

The boyhood home of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Abilene, KS. You can see a little teeny bit of the sign on the right hand side of the pic.

Re: I like Ike
That picture makes me want to be there, underneath those shady trees. I really like the placement of the building, sort of corner-on. Good work.

Re: I like Ike
That looks like a lovely, restful place :) I like the proportions of the image - you can see the details of the building, and you can also see how it fits within the surrounding landscape.

My favourite 'art' in the city:

Building Pencils 3

There's also some that are Stuck in the concrete but they didn't turn out as good as this one.

Hah hah, those are fun. This picture gives me a sense of being there, looking up and seeing those pencils as well as the rest of the building.

The pencils are very cute! I get a sense from the composition that this building is quite complex, with multiple sections connected by bridges and passageways. Not just a concrete box.

I like the glimpses of the interior features, like the handrail and the lights - always gives me a sense that the building exists to be used, not just to look good.

The other image gives me a real sense of "don't stand here!" I suspect that's been the site of more than one student prank ;)

Hey all, sorry for being away for quiet a while, to be honest I could even submit some pictures to previous weeks. The topics always inspire me to go out on weekends and look for footage, unfortunately, once I am back, instantly getting busy with other stuff. However, here's my late submission for last week, the new soccer stadium near Munich, home for two major teams in Germany. This is a shot at sunset, note that the white sheets are transparent, depending on which team plays the day, the whole surface can appear bright red or blue at night from lights inside. very impressive.

Re: Allianz Arena
Oh wow, that's fantastic; great composition. The only thing that could make it better (to me) is maybe if that light pole didn't exist
