Photo Friday: Architectural Photos as Art – Utah Style and Design

Last week I blogged about using my photos as artwork to enhance the architectural photos I shoot. I had some interest in seeing more of these photos, so back by popular demand are more architectural photos as art.

The opening shot is a detail of one of a tower that is part of Anderton Court, a shopping area in Beverly Hills designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.  I color processed the sky to reference a popular color of the early 1950s, the era of the buildings.

This black and white photograph of a detail shows the play of geometry of the Anderton Court shopping plaza.

This is an interior of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House in black and white. The details of the block’s imprints, the other stone, and architectural patterns create a  lush ornateness and clear composition.

The starting point is a skylight detail from Florida Southern College (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright). I abstracted it by spinning the image in post-production.

The concrete block detailing is much more graphic in black and white. (Hollyhock House, Los Angeles, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright).

This photograph of blooms in front of the blocks of La Miniatura is one of my favorite photos. La Miniatura (Millard House), designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in Pasadena, California.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s circular design of the Marin County Civic Center extends to the architectural details that coalesce in this photographic detail.

Paired waterfowl on the pond add to the perfect day to shoot this beautiful but not often shown angle of the Marin County Civic Center (Frank Lloyd Wright).

This coral stairway in the Marin County Civic Center photographs like an abstract painting.

Black and white enhances the geometry of the Price House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and located in Phoenix.

Similarly, the architectural detailing of the mid-rise office tower, the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, could be overlooked in color but stands out in black and white.

Continuing with black and white, the Storer House textile concrete blocks knit together in a variety of patterns, including the perforated pattern that splatters on the interior of the home. (Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and located in the Hollywood Hills, California).

The same textile concrete blocks seen in the pond of the Storer House are best appreciated in color amid the landscaping.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Stewart House in Montecito, California, is the first of his California homes, and the perforated pattern in the redwood foreshadows the patterns in the concrete blocks of this later homes.

The Allen House in Wichita demonstrates the layering of horizontal elements prominent in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie style homes.

Like many Utahns, I warm to the simple honesty of early homes. This one is located in Grafton and I processed the image in sepia tones.

Not a bit of architecture in this photo, but it is a reminder that spring will indeed arrive soon. I took this photo of Zion National Park in mid April several years ago.

See the blogs these stunning images came from here!
