Architectural Concerns

Canon G9 camera

Canon G9 camera

One of the concerns an architect has when designing a building is the need to design a space through which people can move. Depending on the era in which they’re designed and constructed, major metropolitan train stations may feature either grand or contemporary facades. But, as they are designed for the prompt passage of large crowds of people, they are often relatively bare and somewhat sterile environments inside.

The above image features a side entrance to Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia. The site features undercover galleries and exhibition spaces, shops, restaurants and bars, a tourist information centre and a large paved open-air area for people to meet, congregate and move through.

I was particularly taken with the strong design aspect within the façade and surrounding area. The wall, steps and bike stands display strong repetitive forms and the colors within the stone provide welcoming warmth to the visitor.

Processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2.0 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.

  1. Hi Glenn,

    How do you find the G9? Im thinking of getting one and heard its much better than the G10.

  2. Hi Warren,
    Hi Warren,

    I’ve only used the camera for about 20 minutes in total, just long enough to get my head around it so that I could help a friend out to whom it belongs. I know there were a few issues with the G10, which is probably one of the reasons why the G11 has just hit the market. As I don’t own this type of camera and, until this recent experience, haven’t had anything more than a passing interest in them, I feel unqualified to comment in any decisive way. I do think, like most other digital cameras, that there are too many buttons and menus with which to deal. This is one of the reasons why I may well go back to Leica before the end of the year. If you’re looking for a camera where technology serves, rather than hinders you, it might be worthwhile checking out if Leica or Panasonic have anything worthwhile in your price range.

    My site is primarily about the practice and love of photography. And I do hope you’ll continue to visit regularly. If you’re looking for great technical reviews on equipment then dpreview.com (it’s a subscription-based site) is the best I’ve seen.

    All the best,

    Glenn
