Pillars of strength
Like a rock
San Francisco, CA, July 2008 [Click to enlarge]
I love when pictures instantly give you a sense of size and scale. These pillars suggested, strongly, the concept of massive as soon as I walked past them. I got the sense that they had been here forever, and that nothing we build today can quite as effectively suggest strength as these architectural features can.
Your turn: Why don't new buildings inspire the same feelings of awe that old ones seem to?
About this photo: This is another in a series of images that, despite being shot in color, came out in near-monochrome. Which fits this week's Thematic Photographic theme of...monochrome (what, you were surprised?) New theme goes up tomorrow (Wednesday) evening, so you've still got time to share your photo or link.
