    Default Assignment #6: Architecture

    Communication is more than just words; communication is architecture. Because of course it is quite obvious that a house which would be built without that sense, without that desire for communication, would not look the way your house looks today.
    - Mark Z. Danielewski

    Architecture has been called inhabited sculpture, frozen music, and as 'forms assembled in the light.' We think of the grand buildings of each of our cultures, the bridges, museums, and opera houses, but it's also our homes, schools, and offices. Every building around us was designed to serve a purpose by enclosing space. Every architect must deal with the problems of lines and shapes, scale and dimension. These are the same issues that we face as photographers, but applied in three dimensions instead of two.

    As with anything artistic, we all bring our own style and experience to photography. Architectural photography may be documentary, descriptive, interpretive -- anything we like is correct if there's no client to please. For this assignment, look at the way other people have solved the problem of dividing space, and the problems that you can solve to capture it.

    Remember that architecture can be interiors as well as exteriors, and buildings as well as the environment that they're built in.

    Here is a picture I got that raised some question marks:

    I was traveling and the picture is taken through a bus window while passing by on the highway. I got a bit perplexed when seeing this construction. I snapped away the best I could. Here is a 100% crop (another angle):


    I wish I had a day and a permission to enter the area and get more pictures. From the inside, and...
    I hope it is OK with non-Oly pictures btw. At the time I used Pentax equipment and these are taken with a K10D and a 35mm lens.

    regards,
    Jonas

    The church - to much of sharpening artefacts (?).
    The stairs - I can like this one, the colors and the snow make it
    The normal building - what a weird effect those super wides provides us with! Lol. The eye is easily tricked for a few moments.

    Derelcit Architecture. A Victorian Hospital chapel, now disused, forgotten and empty. Taken a few years back, only thing i dont like about it are the blown out top windows. It was quite hard to expose correctly.

    I bet that would make an excellent location for an HDR photograph.

    I'm sorry to say but the assignments are not the contest Maaike. You will find the contest thread in top of the "Monthly Contests" forum, the subject of this month's contest is "Creative shadow effects". You can only enter in the contest if you are a paying member.

    The assignments are a two-weekly event, no prices and no need to be a paying member.

    P.S.: I like your two architecture shots very much.

    Emmela, Henk's exactly right. The assignments are a fun community activity; no judging, no winner, and no time limits.

    I'm really enjoying the variety in this thread. Big cities, abandoned Victorians, and mystery bunkers; and a really cool shot of a humble waffle house that really appeals to me.

    Here are a couple of mine, one from last night, and another from last summer:

    Oh, well, I don't mind. It is just fun to look at other photographers work on a subject I like.

    Here is a classic modernist icon that no-one has done so far :-)

    Its the De la Warr pavilion (1935) on the south coast. I shot this a few years back at sunset in January on Provia.

    Enjoy!

    Two pics, if I may: The Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey (6 photos photomerged) and the The Dom in Cologne, Germany. I just love the extremely old structures. Always amazes me how intricate they are and that they were constructed with mostly low tech tools and manual labor.
