Natural vs. Human Arcitecture

I traveled to New Hampshire to deliver my black and white and sepia photographs of Bethlehem to the iconic Colonial Theatre in that lovely town.  Bethlehem is nestled in a marvelous natural setting: the White Mountains.  As a fine art architectural photographer, I was struck by the architecture of nature: bold peaks, vertical trees, horizontal layers of clouds, elliptical ponds, et al.  While nature may not adhere to the architectural styles created by humans, there is a harmony in natural structure that humans have to work hard to achieve.  Nature as architecture seems effortless and, well, natural.  I was even more aware of the disparity between natural and human architecture as I drove back to New York.
