Architecture

Workspace at one doors and hardware supply company.

Today is the last of the ten day photo challenges in WordPress’ Developing Your Eye I, and I had a blast.

The theme, ‘Architecture’, is hard to isolate as the subject of a photo. Is a shot of the space-users’ equipment superfluous? Are fans appliances, or are they necessary elements of the space? And what about a room full of doorknobs?

A building or location is hard to summarize in just one view, but I’ve tried through the above photo. My location today was a doors and hardware supply company where my father works. Most of the photos I’ve taken were inside their workshop (the size of a large warehouse), but some were taken in the storefront open to the general public.

Not all of the photos are of architectural elements, but they were successful forays into black and white photography, so I’ve included them. What’s your favorite photo?
