Each month Brenda over at How To Feather An Empty Nest challenges us to get out of our comfort zone and try something new. I know I'm pretty stuck on nature photography, so it does me good to train my eyes to look for something different. Brenda is the queen of architectural photography. The angles, lines, and shadows in her photography are amazing! She also captures stunning window reflections. Click on the link above and see some of her gorgeous work. She also has beautiful images in her flickr photostream. Since her images intrigue me, I thought I'd try my hand at architectural photography. It's was definitely a challenge for me.
Brenda has done a series of "pie in the sky" shots. I had a really hard time getting mine symmetrical. They're still a little off!
I've been visiting several small towns in Arkansas lately. Walking around the older parts of town and looking for interesting buildings. I love looking at the textures of bricks, rocks, pealing paint, and weathered windows. I also love the old original glass panes that have endured through the years.
Not only are the widows fascinating, but so are the unique doors.
Architecture is so different than nature! I found it hard to make the images look alive and not flat! But, it was fun getting out for the day and looking at buildings in a new way!
