Wife: Why do you like to photograph buildings? Is it because you're a frustrated architect?
Me: No, yes, mmmmm, maybe.
Wife: Then why? What is it about buildings that you like so much?
Me: I could give you numerous reasons: buildings are like people; they all have their very own personalities-- they change during the course of the day and depending on the weather, they can evoke different emotions. They challenge you to think, to pause and to contemplate. I can go back to the same building many times and see something new each time. They can either make you feel sad, happy, strong, weak, or even downright silly.
Wife: Yeah, right!
Me: The real reason I like to photograph buildings basically boils down to the following:
° They are always on time and never use traffic as an excuse.
° They never complain that it's too hot, it's raining, or omg, my windows need cleaning.
° They never question lens choice.
° There is never a clash of personalities.
° Take direction extremely well.
° It's just me and the building
