travel world architecture governmental

Capturing the essence of a three-dimensional structure is not easy. Usually, one photo can not do justice to any single piece of architecture.

This section is a collection of both what I consider "good" photography and what I consider "record" photography.
Some simply represent an attempt to record my visit to an architectural site rather than create great photography... others, I think, are quite technically and artistically good.

I learned something from visiting each one of these projects... some were exceptional architecture...
others taught me that fame does not always mean quality architecture...
