Geometry defines a space


Inside looking out: design has the capacity to transcend - to encase space into unimagined shapes that bend the properties of light and shadow - taking our head and our heart into altogether different territory.

Inside looking in: the flowing curvature of ceiling - pressured by the once molten sweep of sandstone beneath - edges notches of shadow up to the light.

These are amazing shots with the lines, reflections, the light all working together wonderfully well ... even better than yesterday and they were great. You make this building entrancing. I want to go and see it.

Julie, these are fabulous. You have a real knack for transforming architectural images into art. You help us see these spaces with a sensitive, interpretive eye. Brilliant, really.

Good series of interesting buildings and designs. I'm not at all familiar with these.

Another wonderful juxtaposition of lines, shapes, light and color!

Terrific composition. I'd guess that it is architecture. Beyond that, it's better not to know what it is and just enjoy the design.

That is the chicken said...

The composition on these is very thoughtful...did it take you long to get the shot you wanted? I especially like the flare from the light in the second photo.

These are even more intriguing than yesterday's. It's wonderful that people take the time to do more just throw up a building. Very sharp eye, Miss Julie.
