Scrape the Skies

building

This is a tall building I saw today that I don’t really know the purpose of. It supposedly is an apartment or office complex. A flag waves way up high along with some satellite and antennae used to pick up television and radio signals. The architecture of this building looks like it’s from the early to late 1950s when buildings like these sprung up everywhere as cities were quickly developing and people were leaving the countryside.

Photo 101: Day 12 – Architecture

Perusing around my home, the freezing, bitter weather nipping at my face, I discovered lots of shapes and interesting lines around buildings and taking close up shots of them trained my eye to look at the geometry within. there really isn’t that much to see where I live, stuck in the swamp of a mobile home park where any attempts at decoration and innovation come off as tacky. Thoughts of walking out of it and starting a journey up the long road to see more interesting lines evaporated on this ruthless November day, the first signs of winter hitting Michigan hard.

Along with these pictures, I also decided to put up a few of my archives that flash out as interesting geometrical designs.

0429 Shelldoor

The “Shell Door” as I call it, was taken at a local McDonalds and is iconic because of it’s symmetry and commanding presence in the center.

Day 41

The stools, taken at a Steak N’ Shake, contain circles, squares, and rectangles and the red pops out against everything else.

0820

The Missouri Bridge, taken by me last year while on a trip down there, contains triangles and more forms of symmetry.

And finally, the ceiling of the clock tower on the campus of Kansas University contains many beautifully arranged squares.
