home town seeing

After having several posts last month that were heavy with thought provoking questions, I felt including a few photos that I have taken around my hometown of Greensburg, PA would be a respite from my normal pensive rhetoric of endeavoring to figure out this thing we call architecture. How about if we just enjoy a few nice photos today. What do you think? Do you have any interesting shots of your hometown that tell a story?

what do architects like to photograph?

There are several things I enjoy photographing, but since I am an architect, architecture is high on the list. Why are you surprised?

I enjoy photographing my family, namely my son (since my wife doesn’t care to be photographed) and I enjoy landscapes and other outdoor photos.

However, in my almost 30 years of an amateur photographer, architecture has always been a favorite. There is such an obvious link between photography and architecture with respect to composition, space, light and texture. The only thing better about architecture is you can actually inhabit it. Photographs still hang on the wall or the screen. See my January post where I shared some of my travel photographs.
