There are many things that I am drawn to when it comes to photography, but there are three words that mean I’m definitely going to be a while with my camera, so you might as well just sit down and relax. Those three words are: detail, patterns, and texture.
While touring the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa last fall, I found my eyes being constantly drawn upwards to gaze in awe at the decorative ceilings. They were rich and colourful and bursting with incredible detail. It’s a wonder I didn’t end up in a heap on the floor because I was certainly not watching where I was going, but I managed to stay upright and capture many beautiful works of art (because that’s what they really are in my opinion) before the kink in my neck made me turn to lower attractions. Here are a few of the most interesting ceilings, and I have saved my favourite of all for my next post. Stay tuned!
