Some days you wake up and you just feel like trying something different. You've done the field jump & the backyard jump, the living room jump & the beach jump. Today it's time for something new. Today it's time for...(drum roll please)...the building jump!
Let us pay homage to those peeps who are willing to embrace the action shot in front of the crowd of curious onlookers who have come to witness architectural art from all over the world :)
We begin with Katie's shot outside the Dome (aka Building #10) at Killian Court on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I love that she is facing building head-on, as if beckoning all the wisdom that school embodies!
Next, we travel all the way to Budapest, Hungary, where we find Ivika's shot from outside the Parliament . Located on the bank of the Danube, this is currently the largest building in Hungary, which makes it a wonderful backdrop for some great action!
We end with the oldest architectural masterpiece of the bunch - Xosé's shot with daughter Ana from Abu Simbel, Egypt...just outside the Temple of Nefertari. Located on the bank of Lake Nasser, this "Nubian Monument" originally dates back to the 13th century BC - could this be the oldest site for an action shot yet?!?
There are architectural works of genius everywhere. Find one near you today and introduce it (and the tourists around it) to the wonderful world of the kick ass action shot! :)
