The Classical Feelings?

Location, location, location. Although photos can be taken at almost everywhere, I still think that a good location is an added bonus to a photo. One of my favourite locations is always old buildings or structures. I do not know exactly why, but they always give me the sentimental and classical feelings. Modern architectures are way too complicated and tall. I am not saying that they are not good and beautiful but I simply love old buildings, just like some people who love classical music and songs like Beethoven, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and the Beetles. Simplicity in old buildings also attracts my attention.

Some of the blogs I read, the authors love to shoot macro objects, and beautiful landscapes . If you notice in my blog, I like to do portraiture and shooting people at old buildings. Here are some of the shots I love. I don't know about you. What do you think?

I am not losing to you. I am the 1st commenter too. I like the expression at the last photo. Everyone have their own expression.

I admit that it is quite hard to write a long comment. So you the winner in term of length.

I love old buildings for the same reason as you too <3
and u know what else I like? Castles! Luckily we have many of them here in Slovakia ;)

GhostyNana :Usually if i read very few post at one time, be prepared to receive long comments from me. Hahaha

LingLing :If there is one place that I would like to take photo...? that will be a castle. We do not even have one here.

Good photos....can use for music records covers.

I like the idea of combining the old and the new. Shooting old, rundown buildings and urban decay are interesting projects.

I like the first picture, and I like old buildings as well. They have more character than the modern buildings.

I'm always afraid of old building because they are always haunted if left abondon. haha...i think too much. But they do make the best photo's background. Nice work here.
