Photohunters: Knitted Architecture



One meaning for knitted is to be joined closely together.

I went to my archives for pictures of my city (Raleigh, NC) that would show buildings which were knitted together.

In the downtown part of my city there are a lot of examples of buildings which are closely joined together.

These pictures were taken last spring at the Artsplosure festival.

In some of the shots, people and sculptures of dancers were knitted together.

Well done! I showed pictures of buildings and people knitted together too.

Happy weekend!

wonderful take. these two themes are getting more and more difficult to combine in my opinion, but you did wonderfully as usual.

It never had occured to me that buildings could be knitted together and of course they often are. Well done on the theme and I liked the people scultpures joined and knitted together as well

You're a genius! And your photos are wonderful. That's a big city you live in...I can really see that from this series.

Your beautiful photos almost made me forget I am tied in a human knot because I am so cold. Thanks for the January thaw!

Excellent photos and great combination of two disparate Photo Hunt themes!

You got some really neat angles on these buildings and sky! Love that first shot particularly! And what a neat sculpture of the antebellum couple dancing!

very nice. i always forget that there is another theme that has been going on. if i remembered that, i probably wouldn't have one for today's theme.

Hi Carver, wonderful take on the two themes. I liked that first photo with the clouds in the middle. Great perspective.

Have a wonderful weekend.

A fantastic collection. I love how vibrant downtown Raleigh is.

Hope you are having a great weekend and keeping warm!
