Struts, Bars, Beams, Arches

For Black and White Weekend, a few studies in architecture from past journies...

Our first big trip as a family foursome (i.e., visiting more than just England) we spent a whopping three days in Paris. It was stiflingly hot that summer and we slouched in the shade of the Eiffel Tower.

Paris, obviously, 2004

A year later I shepherded two 15-year-old lads around England and although staying mostly to unbeaten tracks we did have to pay homage to a tourist sight or two.

British Museum, 2005

London Eye, 2005

And then a year after that my wife and I got to enjoy a brief Italian sojourn without kids at all. What a concept! It was blisteringly hot then too. Italy won the World Cup and all hell broke briefly loose.

Milan Galleria, 2006

Florence parking garage, 2006

What a great series of patterns! They are all so different, yet all so good.

You express the power of these structures. The Eiffel tower one - I'm surprised this isn't a familiar view, it makes clear its immensity. Pictures from a distance show its height but not its heavy complexity.

Great series! I especially like the photo of Milan Galleria! Wonderful ines and curves!
