There doesn't appear to be an architecture W/NW thread yet, so I'll start one...

Nice shots!

This photo is not one of my most riveting of subjects but like with many images there is just something about it that I find interesting. Perhaps it is the rarity of witnessing such a clean alley or the vertical, urban canyon effect. Anyway...
Melbounre Shrine of Remembrance. I like the abstraction of this unfamiliar angle of that building, and somehow the softening effect of the sombre foreground tree makes me think of the many dead buried a long way away. Mybe I'll get it right with the next post: editing this one dosen't seem to work.

Cannot seem to link to my Flickr. There should be a sticky pane in RFF that tells us the low down on posting images. Searching was quite unrewarding. Generally the navigation of RFF is very backward. The interface looks nice. But I am geeting thumbnails again, despite being within the site's limits. Can someone refer me to some detail on how to do this?

Thanks a million Joe. This is an old photo, imperfectly copied, taken with a 50 summicron on Ilford FP4. Palazzo Pitti, Florence.
Nice one Richard G. What made you choose to include the rail across the foreground? I like that it creates a little action in a composition that might otherwise be just a building planted in the middle of the frame.
Thanks very much Warren. It was Florence. I took some of my best pictures there. I noticed the staining of the pilastres, making the beautiful face with perhaps not quite perfect teeth, as well as the diagonal for a bit of action as you say. Here's another, with the informal foreground element. I love these negatives. Even the sky detail is there. All of these were with sunny 16 and Leica M4-2 with 50 Summicron I bought there.
