Wonder Wednesday

Now this is a great photo of Falling Water:

Aaaaaa, I just love it.  The snow-covered trees forming a neutral backdrop makes the diagonal slash of the river, punctuated by the house itself, all that much more prominent and dramatic.  And the leftover red foliage in the lower right corner helps balance it out and make everything pop.

A sweet photo of some sweet architecture!

Oh. Wow.  Check out these very fun photomontages of wonderful locations… and GIANT CATS!

Chilling in NYC…

Or, even better, in Toronto!

Something a bit more secluded (and surprising!)

No one seems all that concerned, fortunately.

Which is good, as kitties can be quite serene, blessing those at Lake Louise.

Of course, they love modern architecture too, and visit Calatrava’s WTC Transportation Hub.

Before ascending to the stars above.

All so much fun!

I’ve just been introduced to these great works by Hilla and Bernd Becher.  There’s something cool within repetition that isn’t exact actual repetition. It’s like a harmony, where each overlapping individual thing produces a richer whole and thus a distinct experience.  On top of that, they can be truly intriguing,  inviting fascination with the collection and collectiveness and patterns and similarities and differences and organization of them all.

(Also, check out Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Seascapes series.  It is equally interesting and fascinating… especially when coupled with some great architecture and artistic placement such as at the Benesse House by Tadao Ando!)
