Cee’s B&W Challenge – Structures

Cee’s B&W Challenge – Structures

badge

This week’s Black and White Challenge is Structures. The definition of a structure is ‘mode of building, construction, or organization; arrangement of parts, elements, or constituents.’ This is one of my favorite subjects, as most structures are stationary, allowing more time to get the photo you want.

The first photo is the Portland Head Lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  Lighthouses are fascinating structures with a colorful history. This tower was built in 1874

Galveston, Texas has some beautiful old churches, which are massive. Here I focus on one part of the church.

Windmills in Kansas used to power a water well. These simplistic structures are still used in many places in the Midwest.

The theme for this Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Patterns.

 

Last August, I attended my first hot air balloon festival. I didn’t expect much since it was a small event but I have to admit, it was incredible. Especially after dusk when the inflated balloons were light up. Below is one of the balloons as it was being inflated.
