  1. ! Hi, I’m proud of(p) you like the contrasts of the dissimilar edifice styles– such(a) fun to find out.

  2. I’ve got to get back to NYC!

  3. These pictures are all wonderful. The Oslo Opera house and the trigangles are my favorites.

  4. Nice how you show us the transition from ‘old en new’ New York! Also nice all this patterns, but the last one ‘Sunset Windows’ is the most beautiful! I love those colors!
    Best regards, Heidi

    • Hi Heidi, I’m pleased you like the contrasts of the different building styles– such fun to find. The light that night for Sunset Windows was amazing– so glad you like it. Thanks for your kind thoughts.

  5. I’m late getting here, sorry! Architecture makes a great subject, doesn’t it? I haven’t been to all these places, but I’ve photographed from the High Line many times, and love it. I like the variety here, of types and locations, particularly “Hilly Living” (SF?) and “Helsinki Style.” The compositions bring out the subjects so nicely in those two. Hope you’re having a good summer!

    • Hi Lynn, No apologies! Life comes first! 🙂 I agree, the challenge of photographing buildings and cities is such fun. I’m happy you like these–thanks so much. Will be heading over to see what you’ve been shooting– life is definitely keeping me from my blog visits! I hope you are enjoying your travels this summer.

  6. There’s a strange kind of beauty in towering buildings — especially when you change the angle of the lens. Your shots are fantastic! I particularly loved the last shot with the pink hues of the sky. It adds a very different effect to the setting. 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, I’m pleased you enjoyed these, thank you. You sure have seen many cities and so your reaction means a lot. I must pop over and see what you’ve been up to. I appreciate your visit here! 🙂

  7. Great selection of high quality images Jane! I like them all but I would select Stockholm Syndrome as my favourite and Hilly Living b/c of the Church amidst the newer structures.

  8. I really enjoy the great variety of buildings from different countries. Thank you for a beautiful post!

  9. A gorgeous series of photos, Jane. I love how you are able to capture the feeling of the city.

  10. Wow Jane, super impressed – on so many levels!

  11. Another wonderful collection Jane! You are a very prolific photographer … do you sleep? ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ is my favorite.

  12. I had trouble deciding on a favorite until I saw Sunset Windows. The colors are stunning and the effect on the buildings is serene.

  13. Like your B&W roofscape with all of the water towers. In the bygone days, nearly each building had their own tower to supply water. They hadn’t quite figured out how to supply water above the first and second floors. I’m glad those towers have remained and not torn down.

  14. Apparently city living isn’t for me – some of the pictures made me feel anxious so tightly in there. I did like Stockholm Syndrome, and the variety of pictures and places.

  15. Hi jane, wonderful pictures for this week theme my favorites are the last one and the penultimate.

  16. While you do great photography – period, I really like the first shot with the “contrast” of the building and the rest of the city.

  17. Looking at your amazing shots I really start missing architecture photography. And nice “playgrounds” too, Jane. Stunning series as always. Happy days! Reinhold

  18. These are amazing shots that make me dizzy with their width and breadth and dazzled with their beauty.

  19. Beautifully composed, Jane. As always high class photography of yours

  20. Very cool shots Jane. I need to get back to the city once in awhile

  21. so, so perfect for the theme, Jane. I like best the Hilly Living photo as it shows a collage of talents there. 🙂

  22. Great examples of the theme, Jane.
    I absolutely love “Sunset Windows.”
    Have a wonderful week ahead!

  23. I am the administrator of a flickr group called Buildings/Architecture that would welcome these pictures

  24. A great gallery Jane; of course I love the abstract qualities of the Reflections. Best wishes

  25. Great architecture shots.

  26. Building patterns from all angles, remarkable!

  27. Wonderful collage, Jane! I love the New York ones, maybe since I was just shooting very similar vistas there.

  28. Love these…..

  29. Great choices Jane. Stockholm Syndrome is the one that most caught my eye.

  30. Great post. Although I love your photos of nature and people, I think you’ve got a flair for architectural detail!

  31. loving the details in these shots especially ‘reflections’ just gorgeous!!

  32. Hi Jane! Love the post. Interesting play with the style, shape and position of the urban graffiti on Element, High Line.

  33. Gorgeous images Jane 🙂

  34. Oh, some great images, Jane! Stockholm syndrome caught my eye….

  35. Gorgeous, Elegant series: well shot, thought through and processed.

  36. beautiful images, magical lens and incredible …

  37. A wonderful series Jane! Beautiful photos showing you have a great eye for details and colours:) I normally prefer nature, but you show there is much beauty to be found in the cities as well.

  38. What a wonderful series, Jane! I particularly like ‘Reflections, San Francisco’ and ‘Sunset Windows’. Fabulous! 🙂

  39. “Hilly Living” is just awesome!

  40. Ahhh so beautiful Jane, how do you do this! ❤️
