Does photographing architecture of times past give us a glimpse into the lives of the people in those times? Not really, or at least not completely, given that the history left behind for us is selective. It doesn’t take away from the wonders of architecture, though! 

Scale

Sagrada Familia
Can you tell how high the ceiling is? It’s difficult to get a sense of scale in a picture that was clicked looking straight up, isn’t it?

Windows

Sagrada Familia
If my room had windows like this, I wouldn’t mind not having a view of the outside!

Clicked at Sagrada Família, Spain.

Corners

Lines
It’s clever how this pattern looks like it’s made of a whole lot of intersecting squares whose corners form eight-pointed stars, but there are really no squares at all here.

At the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain.

Heritage

Sculpture on mantap pillar

Seen at Chitradurga Fort, a well-known site in Karnataka (the state where I live) with quite a history, and associated with legends in the Mahabharata, an epic dating back centuries before our time..
