ARCHITECTURE AND STRUCTURES

My parents wanted me to become an architect as I was developing as an adolescent. Architecture remains a lifetime first love as a desired profession and eventually remains more of a photographic interest than a vocational one. I always pay homage to architecture for it was the reason that I became interested in becoming highly skilled at the art of perspective drawing.
I hope to always keep a strong interest in the complex forms and silhouettes on the horizon that make up the busy skyline of the major cities as well as the subtle hard shape of a single building surrounded by the terrain. There will never be enough time to appreciate and study architecture for it is ever changing and worldwide. I have included images here that only cover the little that I have time to notice as a practicing anthropologist. I will be adding and subtracting as I go through the days.
