Portico #1

Portico #1

The portico to the Austrian Parliament features columns that wouldn’t be out of character in a Greek temple.

I was intrigued by the way that they were lit, so I wandered up to take a look at some of the details. The lighting creates some interesting shadows and contrasts – although the verticals were very challenging. It’s maybe not an obvious photo to show from the Parlament, but it would be wrong to overlook the details.


(Other, similar images can be found on my Flickr site – if you’re interested.)
