Ceilings, surfaces, textures and patterns (a small collection)
I'm often finding myself looking up at ceilings, developing a cricked neck! I think for the amount of attention to detail that goes into the construction of ceilings, and any surface for that matter, it is a shame we don't spend more time admiring them. Below is a collection of some that I've taken about the place that I thought is worth sharing.
I found myself laying in the middle of the floor in the Salt Lake City Capitol building recently, positioning my camera to get the chandelier in the center of the dome. Was certainly happy to have live view for that one!
Other ceilings that I've enjoyed/enjoy is the stained glass ceiling of the Catholic Church in Brasilia.
Timber and stud work of bridges over the Themes in London.
Huge rivots in steel plate on the Sydney harbour bridge
The slat work on the ceiling of the Beijing international airport
Shakes or shingles on the roof of an old cottage on Buffalo Island near in Salt Lake City
Concrete beam work supporting a new overpass in Brisbane
Pendents on the roof of limestone caves south of Perth
The Anatolian Civilizations Museum ceiling in Turkey has these cool skylight insets
I also love a tree canopy from time to time.
The pattern of this palm frond also caught my eye
This image is of concrete blocks attached to the wall of the Entertainment Building in Brasilia
All of these photos have led to awkward angles and I think it is time to learn to take photos using a mirror held beneath the liveview display!
