Explosive design and pattern in this one.

What an interesting city you live in and what excellent images from you, Julie. I love visiting your blog. Thanks

I love this.. There are so many parallel lines and angles intersecting yet they compliment one another so well.. Monochrome is perfect for this..

Those old Halls we have also here in Germany, but they looks not so new how this...
Servus and have a nice day

This is a wonderfully executed photograph. It draws me in and gives me interesting things to look at. Well done!

Sagatun said...

Love it.
Very nice lines.

Marla said...

Love the look and feel. Your photos are always so amazing.

uncertainhorizon said...

wow, I love the story that that speaks through light and shadow!

Dagrun said...

Excellent choice when it comes to b&wh. Shadows, angle, composition and contrasts. I like it.

Davine said...

How can anything so every day look so great. Great shot.

Piyush said...

Outstanding shot Juile, creatively framed. I like the contrast in this image and completely love the shadows. :)

Dimple said...

This is certainly an eye catching roof line!
Thanks for the visit!

Hi Julie,
Your last pictures are so good, they all have a "Sydney Eye" in them. Your comments are so differents and deep that they help me to improve my way of thinking.
Thanks,
Bye

I thought this was Eveleigh at first. Good strong diagonals and angles.

I like buildings like this, that are proud to be industrial. I really like the powerful zigzag line against the sky.

The first of the shots from my blog was originally in colour, but I hadn't set the white balance correctly so the snow had a blue tinge to it, so b&w it was. I shot the same scene at the end of last summer, and yes, the colours of the leaves were vibrant - but the picture, unfortunately, was blurry! Maybe in the autumn I will get it just right :)

Love the play of shadow and light on the roof.

Pat and Bruce Caspersonn said...

It's nice these buildings are still there and being used. It would be even better if they were put to their original use. Good work Julie.

I like the "geometricness" in this photo; all the lines and angles are neat.

ρομπερτ said...

Waves with angles - what a challenge for the eye.

Please have a nice Sunday.

p.s.: just was wondering "what went wrong" to be missing in the right "further afield" section?

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

A wonderful photo - so many shades of black. The shadows and the pointed roofs are fantastic.
Cheers.

Interesting..looks like the beginning of a movie-

Someone above commented that you live in an interesting city ... but I have got to say for a fact that it is your Sydney Eye that is interesting. I lived very close to the PowerHouse Museum for several years and never saw that shot and I was a photographer by then so no excuse other than I don't have your eye ... though I did get some nice shots around Ultimo.

Geometry with light.

Vicki said...

Light and shade. New and old. Shapes and lines. Awesome.

Dragonstar said...

Wonderful shapes! Lines, angles, contrast - lovely!

Julie said...

Thank you, Friends. Of the memes that I am a member, this is the most challenging to come up with an entry.

Very distinctive - you are ahead of us, of course!
I like it!

awarewriter said...

Wow Julie, you had your artist's eye in fine form when you shot this image.

Three Rivers, Michigan said...

Oh great light and composition - I like the squre pipe on the right side, making a 'stopping point' among all the geometry. Nice.
