The theme for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Architecture. Amy said she was “looking forward to seeing photos and stories of architecture.”
Here is my take:
I like the interconnectedness of the buildings, trees/lights, tres green lights, curved arrow signs, front posts/verticals, cynder wall, and sky. This photo reminds me of this quote: “Architecture is the art and science of making sure that our cities and buildings actually fit with the way we want to live our lives: the process of manifesting our society into our physical world.” ~ Bjarke Ingels
I also think that sometimes I take for granted the everyday architecture around me.
For example, this is the ceiling at the Orlando, Florida airport. I see it all the time and never really pay attention. I actually took this photo because of the tree – but look at the wonderful way they designed the ceiling.
And in this next airport photo, I was grabbing the orange in the sunrise as we were waiting to depart from Richmond, VA.
Look at the sturdy walls and large windows – the architecture lets us FEEL the airport atmosphere.
This next photo I took last week for the lens-artists’ #34 closeup challenge, but did not get to create the post.
But it connects here.
Look at the the strong brick and mortar.
It reminds us that not all structures are created equal.
When I saw this thin structure going up last Fall – it seemed well-made and oddly shaped.
Then, last month, I saw it again. I think this is going to be a Self-Storage place. The rest of the structure is looking like this:
In closing, here is a quote:
“Architecture is really difficult. I realized that only very recently. It’s like music. You can enjoy it but — to know it — it’s a different story.” – Diana Agrest
