A Photo a Week: Civic Buildings

Scott Matheson Courthouse

My husband is a structural engineer, which means I take a lot of pictures of buildings. Some he has worked on, some he hasn’t. This picture is the Scott Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City. This is a building that my husband worked on. I really lucked out when taking this picture. The sky and sun both cooperated. Weather can wreck havoc when you have to take pictures of buildings, especially large buildings, like courthouses or capitol buildings. Civic buildings are usually interesting and beautiful pieces of architecture, designed to add to a cityscape, so they can be fun to photograph.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
