A stunning way to start.  Locked the thread I got going.

His books are crazy prices, so the internet will have to do.  However, on a side note, I love Architecture photography.

I took an architecture tour of Chicago from a boat on the Chicago River, I wish I had the right lenses and angle to get some of those buildings shot right. This was the best I could get, Sears Tower, now Willis Tower in the background...

That is extraordinary, quite haunting.
Reminds me of a shot from Cocteau's film La Belle et la Bête.

I can get you a deal on the Cathedral in Beauvais, half off. But you'll need to send a deposit pronto, or it might collapse. I take paypal.

Is the bathtub in the house?
Cool house, and excellent photographs, particularly the one of the house.

  The bathtub is in this house.  We rented it for a couple of weeks when we went back to Iowa to visit my parents.

Another cool shot! Compositionally quite interesting since there are practically two vanishing points, both diverting the eye away from the house, but the staircase tower (?) helps pulling it back in.
