Architectural Details are Cool :)

Okay, just to confuse you, we’ll get away from the macro, away from dolls, away from flowers, etc. etc. πŸ™‚

I’m an architectural photographer by trade, and although this blog isn’t about that photography, I still notice good architecture when I’m out and about with my camera. Β And when I see a detail that I like, I’ll take a photo. Santa Fe is filled with single story, pueblo style, flat roof homes, which I love, but I also adore meeting up with a pitched roof house or a contemporary.

For this photo, I really liked the more modern feelΒ of the light fixture and the numbers, but also the texture of the stucco and the lines and wood of the door. All of that together had me thinking that I could have a good shot, and this is what I ended up with. This was taken earlier this year with my Nikon 18-70mm lens at f/4.1.
