Looking Up: Striking Architecture Around The World

After seeing photos of famous cities empty and almost deserted as a result of halted travel lately, I couldn’t help but think of my favorite reason to travel, the best part of exploring any city.


Even when people aren’t around to fill streets or marvel at impressive landmarks, cities and their architecture remain. Architecture is a testament to a city’s underlying culture and history. Striking geometric patterns, textured surfaces, and majestic facades tower over the neighborhoods they inhabit. Beautiful buildings are physical expressions, my favorite subjects to enjoy and photograph.
