Architecture has intrigued me since I was a kid, perhaps because my father built houses. I liked houses, and so I took an architectural drawing class in high school. I quickly found that drawing (anything) was not my strong suit.
I loved the giant buildings just beginning to take their places in the Chicago skyline as I grew up. Few skylines in the world, even now, could stand with Chicago’s, but I was more interested in the details…the shapes and sizes, the columns, the surfaces. In fact, many of the first photos I took with my first camera (iPhone 3) were of architectural in nature. It wasn’t, and still isn’t, uncommon for me to stop walking/riding/driving in odd places just so I could get a shot of a building I hadn’t seen before, or had not seen the way I was seeing it at that moment.
Anywhere I travel, the architecture gets some time in front of my lens. Broad skylines or intricate stonework, I like to capture what makes even the most mundane building special. One of my favorite things is to find the reflection of one building in the face of another. I think of it as how the reflecting building sees the one reflected. These architecture photos are from various cities in the US. I hope you enjoy them.
