The subject of the fourth Monday Phoneography Challenge is the photographer’s choice from the following:  Abstraction, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel.  I’m sure we wouldn’t be ostracized if we chose something completely different, either.  If you take photos with a phone or an iThingy of any sort, click on the highlighted link and feel free to join.  Or you might just access the other entries for the week.

My choice this week is “Architecture” and I offer you two very diverse types seen in Philadelphia.  No editing except for adding my name.

  1. My vote is for the first one which is strong in its composition. While it could be anywhere, it has the essence of a contemporary building. The second is more classic Philadelphia (by the way, a city which I adore), and gives a real feel for its Victorian character. Happy Phoneography Monday.

    The first photo is awe! I’m also attracted by the old Philly architecture of the second one. Great choices! I may find a few minutes to post later today…

    I’m a huge fan of the old and really love that second photo…could almost be a gingerbread house.

  4. What a fun house and I love the angles in both choices today!

  5. Great contrast between the two and I love pic 2… probably cos we don’t have stuff like that here so its more a novelty for me 😛

    • Since Philadelphia is such an old (for us) city and they’ve carefully preserved so many of the houses and old row houses, it’s an architectural delight. There are also many stunning new buildings downtown, which is where I spotted the first photo. But I’m glad you enjoyed them. Thanks for visiting and a very merry Christmas to you and yours.

    You captured “different” I like them both and think I know where each is located!

    • Glad you liked them. One of these time when I come out, we’ll have to get together. Hope you had a great Christmas and have a blessed 2014.
