Weekly Contest, Week 6...

Week 5 was by far the most difficult to choose. It took 4 judges, who chose a total of 12 different pictures, before there was more than one vote for any one picture; Sc0tt See Profile, in his first contribution, gets the nod.

This week, for a change of pace, let's try 'Unusual Architecture'...

Here are the rules

It was such a nice morning that I took my camera with me when I went shopping. I liked the way the light hit this building, and it gave me the idea for this week's contest.

Not sure if this qualifies or not, but it is kind of architecture. The opening to an old mine in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Ut. I shot this last fall as it was just starting to snow for the first time that year.

What do you look for when you judge the photos? What criteria do you base the judgments on?

I don't judge them unless I have to...

What usually happens is that I'll look around, and grab some poor sucker random person or two, and say 'pick three'. I don't give them any particular instructions, as I think a visceral reaction is best for this. They'll generally agree on at least one; if so, it's easy (especially if the cat agrees with the choice). If necessary, I grab more, until there's some level of agreement.

When it is structured in some way, I do mention that, though.

Thanks, I do appreciate your scientific approach, and all this time I thought you printed off copies, stuck them on a wall and threw darts while blindfolded.

Perhaps we should recommend your techniques and methodology to the Ice Skating Federation, and perhaps the cat should have a good sniff of the participants as well

I thought the combination of the texture of the marble,the straight lines,and the light made this interesting.

This was taken at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the marble is from the same quarry that supplied the Colosseum in Rome

I don't know if you'll count it as architecture, but I also don't know how else to classify it. Traveling around, looking for a new rock climbing area, we saw this wonderful cemetery. There are several of these tree-like tombstones there. This one was placed in 1899. They are made of concrete, and according to a local historian, they were formed by a lost process.

Isn't architecture a form of art?

Of course, but not all art is architecture!

I will show you art and architecture, but I have to get in the mood first, perhaps late Saturday night when only the mice are about, the deluge will come. In the meantime indulge in this post I submitted in week 3

I took this at Union Station in D.C. about two months ago. The entire city is an architectual wonder, so it was difficult for me to decide which photo to submit.

Hope this counts as architechture. It is an escalator in the Eaton's Centre in Montreal, QC. This is my entry for this week!

The picture was not modified in any way/shape/form. Straight from the camera to you.

Not really unusual architecture, but just a different perspective on a "regular" building.

He, it's actually the Tower Bridge. London Bridge is the next down the Thames.

Here is a nice old house just up the river from me, it's been around for a couple of hundred years and it will probably be around for another couple of hundred years.
