Nature vs Man Made Architecture

When I am in the countryside it always comes to my mind that nature has its own architecture and how it is different from “man made architecture”. This short series tries to illustrate this. This is only an unfinished thought I have in my head.

The architecture made by men may be finite, while that of nature is infinite, enormous, has a grandeur, hugeness, immenseness, vastness, awesomeness, etc. etc. But that of men is often no different. It can be equally great.

Photos of “architecture practiced by men” are the Taua Grande Hotel (a great example of neo classicist architecture) and some old buildings of Araxá, Minas Gerais-Brazil, and the landscapes from a local called “Lost Horizon,” some few kilometers from the city.

Hope you like it.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
