Architecture

I have had a life-long fascination with architecture & design. So much so, that some form of architecture based career might have been a good idea. At one point I did contemplate going back to college, but the hard realities of a 4-year course and the impact on my finances dissuaded me.

Well if I can’t design for a living, I can at least enjoy taking pictures of buildings and their architectural features.

Kentuck Knob — Frank Lloyd Wright. Our last stop before heading back to Missouri was a visit to Kentuck Knob for another Frank Lloyd Wright fest. [12 pictures]

Fallingwater — as close as you can get. The public don’t have access to the place where the most iconic picture of Fallingwater was taken. We have to make do with a spot a couple of hundred yards away. [2 pictures]

We chose to visit on a record breaking day for the museum. I think that helped with these pictures taken in the restaurant. [8 pictures]

Twentieth Century Art Gallery at Crystal Bridges

Unfortunately this gallery was closed. It made up for it by making a great picture though.

Office building with blue windows and a blue sky. E 13th. Kansas City

Walking back to the office from the Power & Light Stage I couldn’t stop myself taking this picture. Kansas City Power & Light District. E 13th.

Color photograph of the Kauffman Center For The Performing Arts, Kansas City. The picture shows the blue of the sky reflected in the metal sheathing and is complemented by a stip of yellow-brown grass around the base.

I popped out of the diocesan office in Kansas City for a meeting and found myself in a pastiche of Sydney, Australia. Despite the 25°F temperature I had to stop and take a picture, the light and colors were just too good to miss. It was a long day – We left at 06:30 a.m. …

Fratton – Portsmouth UK. I cannot resist an architectural shot every now and then, and this was one of those times. [1 Picture]

Encased staircase with Floor 4 marking at the Tate Modern, London UK

The Tate Modern is one of my favorite art galleries. I try to make time for a visit whenever I’m in London.

The Excellent lighting comes from a single roof-light. Very sixties construction, though I think it may have been built a lot later.

This picture appeared as the watermark on all the theatre tickets. I’ve no idea if they are still using it.

Blue Sky reflected in the windows of a blue building framed by a blue sky

I spotted this picture while waiting for a train. I (correctly) judged I’d have just enough time to run over and get the picture before the train arrived.

Burrell [1 picture]

Saw this while stretching my legs this afternoon, the sun was just going down, tracking up the side of the building. I’m trying to get back into the habit of climbing the stairs of this building twice a day. It’ll do wonders for my legs but nowt for my tummy.

I was in a meeting in an adjacent building when I saw this picture. The only trouble is the light had changed by the time the meeting finished and the shadows of the trees were no longer on the building front panels. Oh well. Maybe I should have stopped the meeting and grabbed the shot.

Royal Mail Sorting Office / Post Office, Slindon Street, Portsmouth

Not very subtle architecture… But I did love the way the sky was reflected in the windows and glass.
