Focus on Texas: Architecture

Follow our blueprint for distinctive images

From modest to magnificent, architecture old and new is used for housing, education, entertainment and more. These structures surround, engage and inspire Texans to even greater heights. This month we appreciate designs found right here in the Lone Star state.

Carolyn Williams, CoServ: “While exploring senior photo locations, I had heard that this University of North Texas pedestrian bridge was a wonder. As I got up to the edge, the sun and clouds created these amazing shadows.”

Summer Everill, Pedernales EC: A new installation at the Blanton Musuem of Art in Austin.

Tom Brents, Fayette EC: The Ashbel Smith Building, also known as Old Red, is a Romanesque Revival-style structure in Galveston. Built in 1890 with red brick and sandstone, it survived the great 1900 hurricane and 2008’s Hurricane Ike.

Caryl Zimmerman, Central Texas EC: “The tiny spiral staircase way at the top of the Texas Capitol is barely noticeable but looks terrifying.”

Deana Drake, GVEC: Mission San Juan in San Antonio at sunset.

Ignacio Salas-Humara, Bandera EC: “I was taking a photo of a beautiful barn door at a friend’s ranch when the owner’s dog walked into the picture and posed.”

Kevin Esparza, Pedernales EC: “I found this little building just off Congress Avenue and noticed the reflections and geometric design.”

Jazzmin Aguayo, Nueces EC: “Ethereal beauty inside Cuero’s historic 1930s St. Michael’s Catholic Church.”

Tiffany Douglas, Fannin EC: The lobby of the Menger Hotel in San Antonio.

Kim Fumagalli, Pedernales EC: This small rock and adobe structure built in 1925 provided religious support for Calera residents until the early 1940s. It was restored in 2002 and recorded as a historic landmark in 2010.

Ivan McKee, Bluebonnet EC: “Rock architecture of a time gone.”

Deborah McWhirter, CoServ: “White temple against a cloudy sky.”

Janet Rush, Pedernales EC: Mission San José is part of San Antonio Missions National Historic Park. It’s 300 years old and full of photo opportunities at all times of year with its many lines and arches.
