Picture Perfect Competition #1: Archi-Texture
It's time once again for the bi-annual PICTURE PERFECT competition season. Each week for the next six weeks, the theme will be posted on a Wednesday and those taking part will have until the end of Friday to post their entry. The admins will then pick their 'Top Five' entries and a poll will take place to decide the winner. Full details and rules on the Picture Perfect homepage.
Our host this week is Gayle, and her theme for this week is 'Archi-Texture'. In other words the textures to be found in architecture all around us.
One of the best places I've visited for the sheer variety of architectural textures is New York. The buildings there are endlessly fascinating. My shot is of an NY building that I loved the texture of. Each window is a small black square of smoked glass, off-set by a beige frame, each one in turn inset in a square that makes up part of a grid that covers the entire face of the building. I included part of a street-light pole to try to break up the symmetry, but it seems to partly blend in!!
