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.

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

Silica, Weston super Mare – A couple more views of Silica, Weston-super-Mare’s giant sperm mouldy carrot statement public art piece. I’m all in favor of public art and unusual, even challenging architecture/art. This doesn’t do it for me. 2 pictures

WTF, Bus Shelter or Mouldy Carrot? – I have no idea. Officially, it’s a bus shelter and is called Silica – though comments in the local press have called it a mouldy carrot.

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.
