I was in New York for a few days in late September. As usual I walked for miles, taking pictures of newer buildings, going to the excellent 9/11 Memorial and Museum and crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset. I also attended the opening night of the Metropolitan Opera, seeing Tristan und Isolde – a great evening!
Here are some images for your enjoyment. Come this way …
While I was in New York last month I decided to do a study of numbers around Manhattan – numbers on buildings, street signs, stores signs, in the subway – anywhere I saw them. This is a short (2 min 30 sec) video of what I found.
I was in London in September/October 2015 and was once again taken by the architecture, old and new, in the city. Click on this image for a few shots of buildings, or parts thereof, that took my fancy.
There is a new condo building in downtown Vancouver shaped a bit like l’arche de la Défense in Paris. There are eight concrete columns supporting the arch, with a ninth column made to look like tree bark and inserted as part of the public art required for the project. It think it is interesting at night.
