Picture Day: Looking Up

As you may recall from the post "A Field Guide to Architects", one method for spotting an architect is the awkward photography angles and tortured posture to get them.

A recent AIA campaign entitled "I Look Up" aimed to get others to engage with the built environment as well. Below are a few of my "looking up" photos from places near and far.
