Hills and Harbour

Wellington's hills and harbour

Wellington's hills and harbour

We just happened to be visiting the capital city when the November challenge came through so it was a great opportunity to try to capture the essence of Wellington which is a natural harbour surrounded by hills. You can walk right round the waterfront and look back at the hills. This photo features the Mt Victoria monastery and houses with the Oriental Parade marina in front.
Much more urban than our small New Zealand hometown.

Westward Ho the Wagons!

by Charles Luker
(San Angelo, TX, USA)

"Museum of Fine Arts" building, San Angelo, TX.

The architectural design is very appropriate for this area since it depicts the shape of the wagons that played a major role in the settlement of West Texas. I also chose this building because of the various curves used throughout its design.

THE MIRROR IMAGE

by LUIS A VERA
(LAFLIN, PA, USA)

WHEN ON BUSINESS TRAVEL I USUALLY CARRY WITH ME A SMALL AND THIN 8 MEGAPIXELS CAMERA, AN OLDIE(2005) BUT FUNCTIONAL AND CONVENIENT, IT FITS RIGHT ON MY SHIRT POCKET. THE MINOLTA-KONICA X1. NOT THE SHARPEST OR FASTER BUT ENOUGH TO GET A NICE SNAP SHOT. IT ALSO HAS INTERNAL ZOOM AND OPTICAL STABILIZATION.

A FEW MONTHS AGO I TRAVELED TO CLEVELAND, OH AND THE VIEW FROM MY HOTEL WAS A MAIN AVENUE. THE MODERN URBAN BUILDING IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL SERVED AS A GIANT MIRROR. I MUST ADMIT I DID MISSED MY DSLR, BUT MY TRUSTED LITTLE FRIEND SERVED WELL FOR THIS SHOT. I DID NOT EXPECTED IT TO BE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC QUALITY, BUT ENOUGH TO DOCUMENT THE OCCASION.

THE NON OPENING, SEMI-CLEAN, THICK WINDOWS OF THE HOTEL AND THE HIGHT HAZE MADE THE VIEW A BIT MORE CHALLEGING TO CAPTURE, PARTICULARLY WITH MY THE KIND OF EQUIPMENT I AM USING. THE SHADOWS WERE THE MORE DEMANDING ASPECT OF THE SHOT, BECAUSE OF UNDEREXPOSURE. MY MAIN SUBJECT WERE THE TWO WELL LIT BUILDINGS

THE REFLECTED IMAGE IS THE RENAISSANCE HOTEL.

THANK YOU FOR READING AND LOOKING AT MY PHOTO.

The Monster Building

by Ezra H
(jerusalem)

This complex was built on a beautiful hill- homage for deers, rabbits and other animals. It is called the monster building and the ones who gave permission to built are accused of corruption.

At the Station

by Wendy Reeve
(Motueka, NZ)

I was spoiled for choice with lots of strong lines and patterns in the architecture at Wellington railway station. Just inside the entrance was a mysterious door which seemed to lead nowhere.

View of the CN Tower from the CBC Building

by Lance Gitter
(Thornhill, Ontario, Canada)

I just love the way the metal pillars outside the CBC building in downtown Toronto frame the CN Tower.

Moses Mabidha Stadium

Moses Mabidha Stadium

We were in Durban last month, and I found the lines of this soccer stadium (used for the world cup last year) amazing. A really imposing building.

Windows

This photo was taken in a square in Warsaw. The whole facade of the buildings was visible in the original image but I thought that cropping to just show the different styles and colours of the windows would give the image more impact.

Lisbon Architecture

by Wayne Elliott
(Oakville, Ontario, Canada)

This image was taken last month in Lisbon on the Avenida de Liberdade, more or less the main artery in the city. What caught my eye was the contrast between the contemporary glass front to the building on the left and the classical lines of the building on the right. One is all straight and angular while the other is sensuous curves and concrete pillars, reminiscent of Moorish architecture.
