Favorite Photography Subjects

Written by:

I seem to be drawn to taking photographs of architecture.  I love old buildings, arches, columns, and converging lines.  I love historic landmarks and old military forts. Whenever I take a stroll in a city, I find myself stopping frequently along the sidewalks.  I take a lot of pictures with the camera pointed up toward the sky, to capture the long lines of tall structures.

I once took a brief drive through downtown Chicago, while on vacation.  I’m dying to go back and take a walk through the streets, and fill up my memory card. My dream is to someday take a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. It’s one of the most architecturally fascinating cities I’ve ever heard of. Really, any city with a long history appeals to the photographer in me. There is such a vast list of dream destinations that I’d love to photograph that I doubt I’d be able to list them all.
