In Capitals as the first line of your post:

THIS IS MY ENTRY

If this is not done at the time of posting the picture will be ignored. Should it be absolutely necessary to change your picture then delete the previous picture and add “This is my entry” - as above - as the first line of your new post. If in any doubt contact the Challenges Committee

I came across this and the surrounding topic of brutalist architecture whilst googling angular buildings, a fair few being familiar buildings/landmarks in London however this was had the appeal of forming a spiral from the air.

I recognise that! I was in Southampton for the first time in several years last week. I left the station in the pouring rain to catch a bus to the General Hospital. While waiting for what seemed to be hours I had plenty of time to study the superb architecture of the block. :slight_smile:

That’s the one, it’s an imposing building, if we ever have an rtf for building art, the parade on the left might be a candidate.

The weather has been a wee bit kinder this time around, the days are getting longer - there’s hope for us yet! :slight_smile:

It’s nice to see some excellent pictures but, as always, three have been voted by the GADC members to be the best of the best. So, in third place you have selected the sunrise picture of the sculpture on Hope Island, one of Skelmersdale’s many roundabouts. Well done to Ady - @Leylo1971 for interpreting the subject so well

The largest of Skelmersdales many roundabouts, this artwork is part of an award winning improvement project was completed in 2002, called the Elements. This involved the installation of public art sculptures on the major roundabouts along the town’s main road corridor which also include a fibre optic light tower as well as a fascinating sculpture made up of images of local residents. The Marie Curie Hope Island is the home of the Gateway artwork, as well as a tribute to all cancer sufferers. The Elements project was given a Royal Town Planning Institute award soon after its completion

Second is Jim - @Kings - with the dramatic Leeds Broadcasting Tower, another shot early in the morning (ChallCom is intrigued to discover that there are two 7:28’s in the day :slight_smile: )

And, being lazy, we are going to repeat Jim’s use of the Wiki entry for the tower:

In first place, looking like a rural interpretation of a Union Flag is Jason’s - @Acedrone - treatment of the subject, an overhead view of Longore Square in Lenton Nottingham, just west of the University’s Jubilee Campus.

Well done to our winners and to all who competed - and don’t forget the current competition, Black and White

Many thanks for the votes people👍. Nice entries for 1st and 2nd place @Acedrone and @Kings, good stuff lads.

Also, thanks to @Challenges_Committee for posting a description of the image I posted. Could I hell find any decent one at time of posting :+1:.

Just on a side note, one the other islands which holds the ‘fascinating sculpture of local residents’ I helped create at Lancashire Steel back in 98’ I think it was. Laser cut 8 x 4 sheets of steel of images of local people. Looks good :+1:.

Anyways thanks again for the votes, it was worth the effort to get me arse out and fly again​:+1::+1:
