Chrysler Building, NYC, New York

For the “United States” photo, I went with a biggie and also a photo I hadn’t come across before — a stunning shot!
Here’s the background of the shot (from Jan. 2013), as given by the photographer on Flickr:

After 2500 photos (up to this point) in 4 days in New York City, and after walking several miles with several pounds of gear, I was exhausted, (to put it mildly). Having just had dinner with my cousin on our last night there around 11:30pm, we were headed back to the hotel. It was very cold and very foggy out and I was really looking forward to four or five hours of sleep in a warm, comfy bed before cabbing it to the airport at 6am. I glanced down 42nd Street from Times Square just to get one last glimpse from far away of my all-time favorite NYC building…
The Chrysler Building!
The night, the lights, the fog… it was just too magical to pass up—even after having shot it on two separate occasions earlier in the trip. Right then I knew, I would get very little sleep. So, back to the room to get my gear and off into the night I went…
I took around 300 photos between 12:30-2:30am. This particular one was right across the street (on 42nd) from Grand Central Station. Aside from a slight saturation bump and tone level adjustments, this is pretty much what it looked like S.O.O.C. (straight out of camera).
To me, I could just imagine Batman perched atop the building in the lower-right of the frame overlooking the city… hence naming the photo —GOTHAM—
More to come!
…oh, and, HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, E. Sussex, England, United Kingdom

Stunning photo looking up staircase of the De La Warr Pavilion, which I’ve seen variously described as Deco, Modern and International. All I know is next time I’m in E. Sussex (where an old friend lives and where I’ve visited many times) I am going to beg to visit.
Some great, GREAT photos, architectural and non, in Bartlett’s portfolio.

The shape is sort a Modern/Deco/Streamline, even if it’s concrete.

Deco in Харків / Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine, very close to the Russian border. BTW, Art Deco is Aрт-деко in Ukrainian (and Ар Деко in Russian).
Perfectly restored building in Art Deco style.
Beginning of XX century.

Deco clock tower.
From Flickr (translated):
The Art Deco clock on the bell tower of the former Enicar building in Tunis is in decline. The concrete of this Art Deco building is crumbling, and the clock is stopped.

Unusual looking building. Wonder what the deal is with the slanting windows.
