Architecture has always been a big draw for me.
I hesitate to call it “my passion” because that phrase always sounds so fake whenever I hear it… but the truth is that I’ve always loved seeing buildings and exploring the structures of them, enjoyed examining their construction and materials, and figuring out how they’re designed. It probably helps that I was heavy into mechanical and architectural drafting back when I was in high school, and built high-end architectural models professionally for several years.
Even so, I expect that I would still enjoy buildings and continue taking photos of them, as I did on this recent trip to Washington, DC. Every time I come here I try to do a photowalk through the downtown area, and not just through the Federal buildings with all of their classical architecture. DC has such an amazing variety of building designs that it’s always a pleasure for me to visit.
