Over the years I have been fortunate enough to photograph monuments with various architectural styles ranging from Scottish baronial, Renaissance, Roman, Concrete to Modern in different towns and cities. Slowly but surely I have built up a small collection of photographs displaying architectural works (dating back hundreds of years) by William Burn, Guðjón Samúelsson, Raymond Hope, Michelangelo and many more. Although this post has nothing to do with Music or Sound I thought these photographs were worth sharing online. Scroll down if you want to have a wee look, Cheers.
