    Daylight Saving Adventures and Misadventures

    by W G » Sat Oct 19, 2013 9:54 pm

    Well, despite the grand plans for overcoming my hatred of daylight saving by getting out and doing a shot each afternoon I have let my team down. There have only been two such actual events in the past couple of weeks.

    So, here they are:

    Why don't houses have turrets any more?

    Urban streetscape geometrics — why should design end with structure?


    Cheers,

    Wonderful old house in the first one.
    They did grandeur so well back then, no fake roman pillars for them.
    I think I will do more photography of houses in Oamaru next time I am over.
    Your evenings would be full photographing grand multi story weather board gems there.

    The second one is fantastic, instant appeal. The way the highlights describe the different geometric forms brings a smile.

    Thanks Doug,

    I have waited all winter to get the sun around to the right spot to define and separate the forms. It isn't always about just grabbing what's there.
