Photography Challenge with Sue Karski

A Weekly Photo Themed Blog

Week 36 – #A3 Doors and / or Windows

on April 1, 2015

A3 DoorsContinuing with my visit to the University of Tampa, I am submitting this image of the doors leading to the main hall of the Henry Plant’s Tampa Bay Hotel.  I felt the arches show the Moorish and / or Turkish style as the architecture is described.  I have also included a couple of photos of the minarets.  Designed in the style of a Moorish palace, the enormous, irregularly shaped red brick building features turrets, domes, and minarets.

    I love this, Sue. I have had Tampa on my bucket list and your photo encourages me to get up there sooner rather than later. Beautiful architecture.

    I hate to think how many times I have driven by UT while I was working in Tampa. Just never stopped to capture the beauty. Great image Sue.

      Thank you. Well George, now is the time. I look back and think similar about when I lived in KC and California. Water under the bridge, can’t have regrets just add to list and go visit.

    When I see doors like this I also think of Turkish or Moroccan. Great shot!

      Thank you. I was surprised when I saw the building and then these doors. All I could equate them to was doors at Disney, since I have never been to Turkey. The hard part was trying to get the right angle not to distort them.

  6. Love all the continual shapes and lines. Great composition!

  8. What beautiful shapes and colours. Great capture!
