    For this week’s challenge, let’s focus on buildings. Photographing buildings effectively can be very challenging. Lens, light, shadows, angles, leading lines, backgrounds, reflections, isolating the subject, POV, keeping distracting unwanted elements out of the foreground... there is a lot to consider. Subjects can be city or rural. As always, new photos only please. Get out there and shoot!

    Here are a few sites with some helpful info:

    image.jpeg Ok, nothing as grand as the other submissions so far (all of which I think are very good) but in the spirit of participating I am submitting this. I have shot this same scene in every season but never in snow which is sporadic here in Virginia and rarely coincides with my visits to this spot.

    If I can get into DC this week maybe I can get a shot of something a bit more iconic.

    Side note, am I the only one who struggles with snow?

    Impressive shot, lines on lines on lines .... It could be a sheep grid, steel flooring, a subway grate... the more I look the more possibilities, well done..

    Interesting. Where is this?

    We have a family connection to Jackson. My father would recognize this. The vapor trail that parallels the edge of the building is a nice touch.
