Pattern like woven rattan...gorgeous!

Rhyming ZZZ's behind the curtains...one can only hope the situation in not chronic.
vz-nostalgia: Hope more than just rhyming ZZ's is going on behind those curtains, Ray. smile
Trying to decide whether this would be a nice place to live. It looks a little harsh, but perhaps the views are good. Certainly makes an interesting pattern.
vz-nostalgia: The view is good, Ian. The building overlooks the Potomac River. I'm not sure about the niceness of the place, but I know for sure it's a very expensive place to live (Georgetown, Washington, D.C.) smile

I like the angled perspective and the regular patterns formed by the balconies. I would have liked to have seen a little more of the window as I find it's position right on the edge of the frame disturbing.

vz-nostalgia: Sorry to disturb you in your comfort zone, Ms. Ingrid. That definitely wasn't my intent. smile
brilliant use of lines and rhythm vik
vz-nostalgia: well, I'm a former drummer, Doc, so I know a thing or two about rhythms. smile

Your architectural pics are always very interesting, especially if you have chosen a special (angled) perspective! "My home is my castle"- the fortresslike look of the brickstone houses reminds me of that saying.I completely agree with anniedog, "I would have liked to have seen a little more of the window", although I suggest that mostly there is a conform style- for the human being tends to be a 'gregarious animal'. I' m not so sure that "sleeplees someone writes..." unless personalities like Viktor or Kathryn or...are living "behind the curtain"! Banality is one of the main characteristics in our life - or -less arrogantly said- we need also the personalities who are busy with the do's!
vz-nostalgia: With such a powerful pattern like this, no matter how I compose the window within the frame, the pattern of balconies will overwelm it anyway. So, a little hint of a lamp lit window was sufficient for me to create a nuance. The picture would work without it as well, but it's always nice to have a little emotional "disturbance" to give a bit more depth to a thought behind the photograph.
Let's hope there was a personality behind the curtain, Ms. Philine, as too much banality surrounds us already. smile
Some buildings make a very strong statement. This one says "you don't matter"
vz-nostalgia: You got it, Bill. For some architects the form stands before the function.
This is excellent - really like the angle.
vz-nostalgia: I've noticed you are impartial to angles, Ms. Bernie. smile

behind another curtain sleepless someone reads sleepless verses written with tarnished light

behind the wall a sleepless someone sings sleepless songs with quieted voice…

behind another wall a sleepless someone listens to sleepless songs sung with quited voice

behind the door a sleepless someone paints sleepless pictures with blurred brush…

behind another door a sleepless someone looks at sleepless pictures painted with blurred brush

behind the window a sleepless someone peers out into a sleepless night and asks “are you there?”

behind another window a sleepless someone peers out into a sleepless night and answers, “yes.”
vz-nostalgia: :
...the sleepless verses
the muted songs
the blurred pictures
the deep night calls
they are the silver threads
that weave themselves
into a fabric
of our life...

You usd to Drum? Welcome to the club. Do u have links to structures u have worked on? I would love to see them. I like your take on this building.
vz-nostalgia: Well, not Drum, but drum. smile
I doubt the building has the same opinion about my take on it, Ms. Ada. smile
For the work, go here and see what we do

While I write this, Viktor, I am listening to some raga music and am in a sort of sleepless daze. But the light isn't on....I'm not behind THAT window!

This perspective is totally creative! Probably only an architect would come up with it, you think?? smile
vz-nostalgia: No, you're not behind that window, Ms. Ginnie, someone else is. smile
You might be right, architects do have somewhat special relationships and visions of the buildings. smile

A truly spectacular image and a darn good caption...
vz-nostalgia: A good caption to a photograph, Larry, is like a right spice to a dish, it opens its flavour and deepens its taste. smile

The little story of creation : At the beginning, they all sang: "all in all we're just another brick in the wall"...but then came the shadows, those black holes of silence...the pattern broke, the pesrpective leaned and a new image was born. (sometimes I wake up like this grin)
vz-nostalgia: One wise person once told me that "a shadow is a body dressed by silence" and I loved it. I guess one can extrapolate this thought to the shadows of the building. smile
I hope you don't wake up like this too often, Ms. Reis. Got to watch that bottle of gin. smile
The only one left Viktor! When I first saw this I thought it was wallpaper - because of the tilt
vz-nostalgia: I wonder for how long a person can stay sane in a room dressed by a wallpaper like this. Could be a good idea for a Guantanamo cell. Oops. I forgot. Our president said, we don't torture. smile

the thought behind this shot is supreme. my interpretation of the angle and focal point is the sheer weight of the concept. how light is wakefulness, insomnia or business of life... how heavy nonchalance, habit or dreams?

i like how you etch benchmarks in fluidity.
vz-nostalgia: "benchmarks in fluidity". I got to remember this, Terry. From a material physics point of view it's impossible, because of the nature of a fluid matter, but in a spiritual realm of art, it makes so much sense. smile
Really disturbing uniformity broken by the lit window that
gives us hope of finding light coming from the inside of that bleak Hell some people live in.
Great composition!!
vz-nostalgia: Some find hope in light, while others find it disturbing. We are as diverse in our opinions and thoughts as the world around us, Albert. smile
patterns within patterns...very nice
vz-nostalgia: That's how life is, Derek. On top of our own patterns, someone else's patterns overlap with ours. At the end, it all gets too complicated. smile
