Architectural Detail

Each year, when we go for a photo walk through historic Roswell, the group selects a few themes for the day.

This year, we picked:

  1. The color red
  2. Flowers and nature
  3. Abstracts
  4. Architectural detail

I walked past this one home on Canton Street where the leaded-glass window caught my eye and then, I noticed all the patterns of the shingles along the roof around it.  The repeating pattern and detail are very interesting but, it may be the irregularity of the pieces that I found most appealing.  While the shapes all follow the pattern, you can also see how the lines are not all perfectly straight.  Some of the shingles are a little crooked or slightly different sizes.  The window does not sit perfectly in the casing but everything seems to be as it should be.  I think this just shows the age and reminds me of how much work it must have taken to hand cut and position each piece of this house.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
