Architecture and shadows…

Here are some architectural images from a recent trip to Italy,  some of which have an  overlay of shadows, and that represent the deep colours of Italy and the vibrant symmetry  of what squares and oblongs can offer…my trip was due to my partner being invited to exhibit in Florence and we ended up staying for 5 weeks.  Photo heaven!!!!

Architecture Cubed

This is a collection of architecture photos which are stark and lifeless…which is pretty much what architecture communicates  in the cityscape.  These photos were taken in Geelong and Melbourne, (Victoria, Australia) and represent the bland and alienating nature of modern architecture in the urban landscape…when its done on the cheap!!!.

Architecture as art

Here are a few artistic interpretations of architecture and shapes against the sky or transport.  Previous posts have been about the transience of travel, while  these images are more about the solidity of ground and being anchored to place.  They also offer another dimension with regard to the juxtaposition of shapes in the urban environment.
