These amazing doors are to the old City and Country Building in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The lovely girl posing in front of them is my cousin’s daughter. She picked this location for her senior photos. Great choice.

This is my entry for Norm 2.0’s Thursday Doors challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Towers

towers_nmp

This week’s challenge is all about architecture. This is the tower at Old Main on the Utah State University campus in Logan, Utah. Old Main is a beautiful building that overlooks the Cache Valley and Logan from the eastern foothills. I don’t know much about its history, but I do know that my husband is annoyed by the large A that they’ve put on the roof of the tower and the mirror windows that are obviously not from the same era as the rest of the structure.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF TOWERS.

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″ tag.
  3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Look Down

Salt Lake City and County Building

We are very comfortable with the view right around our eye level. My husband, who is 6’5″, has a much different view of the world than I do at 5’5″. Many times, we fail to notice things right under our feet. Now I will be honest; this view of the historic City and County Building in Salt Lake City is rarely right under my feet. We were lucky enough to win a helicopter ride around the city, and I was able to snap this picture.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) WHERE YOU POINT YOUR CAMERA DOWN OR GRAB A SHOT FROM A MUCH LOWER VIEW THAN YOU USUALLY SEE.

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.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Buildings

At Dunfermline Abbey

I hope this counts. It’s some of the ruins at Dunfermline Abbey in Scotland. The Abbey is still standing.

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.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF CIVIC BUILDINGS.
