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.

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.

Two-fifty – Spotted during my wanderings around London.

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

Blue – 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.

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.
