A walk through my town. 7

By gss  
The same St Nicholas Church of the former Mihai Voda monastery in Bucharest
I have lots of pictures with this historic church > 2000, and tens of video minutes. As working in the past in restoration projects (that are my hobby and passion), it's extremely useful to possess lots of details and general views, ~ orthogonal or 3D perspectives. But details are the most important.
Due to many causes, but principally to quakes, many parts of historical buildings collapses. If we have not any pictures of it, the process of reconstruction is an extrapolation from the "witness elements" in place and making appeal to similar monuments from the same period
Another goal is to project this images on the restoration yards: workers have very rare a good "view in space" and this can make them understanding the solutions [ in difficult cases we done a 3D real model from cardboard and polystyrene , scale 1:1, and hanged it there where reconstruction should be done]
But also they are very useful for us to understand the old techniques and the principles of composition: for example, here, there's a very rare situation: it's a perfectly composed facade, having all elements equal and equally disposed, very organized; a tip is to start the facade arcades from the middle, not the corners [ resulting this interesting corner solution].

As amateur photograph I have the passion of taking shots of facades elements from an almost tangential angle, as here: even a banal facade is transforming itself in a very interesting view. What you think?

The combination of the lines and curves has great eye appeal. Lovely.
