2019 WEEK 7: Interior Architecture

This week’s challenge is Interior Architecture. You can photograph any architectural element that catches your eye: Floors, ceilings, windows, doors, stairs, chairs, woodwork, metalwork, something new, old, big, or small. The only requirement is that the architecture must be found indoors.

You can find great architecture anywhere: Museums, libraries, churches, theaters, hotel lobbies, government buildings, or even your own home. Naturally, I know that not everyone has easy access to the Sistine Chapel. (Though if you do, this might be a great week to visit.) Instead, make use of whatever buildings you have available– you can take fantastic photos anywhere. As always, fun, creative, or out of the box interpretations are encouraged 🙂

This challenge runs from Sunday, Feb 10 through Saturday, Feb 16.

Bellevue Staircase – Eric Minbiole

The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:

  • Take a new photo for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • Post your photo each week to our active communities on Facebook or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo:  #2019photochallenge #photochallenge #tempusaura
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2019 Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge is fun and easy.

About Eric Minbiole

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been absolutely fascinated with anything technical– electronics, computers, cameras, gadgets, etc. Growing up, I loved taking things apart to see what was inside. While I couldn’t always put things back together, I loved trying to figure out how things work. Because of my love for all things technical, I pursued a degree in Electrical Engineering, and currently work as a Software Engineer. I’ve been fascinated with photography ever since borrowing my parents 110 film camera when I was young. It’s been a great hobby ever since: I love experimenting with photos, and trying new things. I especially love technical and/or trick photography. (“Gimmicks!”, as my wife jokingly calls them 😉 ) While I’m comfortable with the technical side of how to shoot, I struggle more with the artistic side of what to shoot in the first place. This is one reason I quite enjoy this group: There are fun, interesting ideas each week. I joined PhotoChallenge as a participant in 2014, and am amazed at how much this group has helped me learn. Each week, I look forward to the fun, creative challenges that Steve, Trevor, Gary, and Jeremy put together. Most importantly, the weekly challenges give me the motivation to get out there and take photos each week. (Otherwise, I suspect my camera might be gathering dust on the shelf.) As well, interacting with the fantastic members of the group– discussing suggestions, techniques, what works, what doesn’t– has been an invaluable help. I am absolutely thrilled to join the PhotoChallenge team– I’ve learned so much from the group, and hope that I can give back a little bit.
