Photo Friday: Archways and Hallways

Like most girls my age who share similar interests, I am what is commonly referred to as a Francophile. Yup, you heard it here first, I love all things French. But what's not to love? The historic buildings, gilded bridges, and winding streets of Paris drew me to France since before I even really knew where it was on the globe. In college I was lucky enough to study abroad for a semester in the south and have been plotting ways to get back there ever since. As you might suspect, I haven't had any luck so far. Anyway, all this probably played a huge role in my falling in love with photographer Franck Bohbot.

Born in the suburbs outside of Paris, Bohbot began documenting cities and urban spaces in 2008. I'm particularly fond of his architectural studies, especially since I have been to some of the places he depicts in his photographs. They make me feel nostalgic and happy. But I also love the composition of these photos. The angle and lack of people in each shot make the pictures seem like geometric works of art, not photographs of hallways. He has a fantastic eye for capturing the gorgeous details of architecture and their repetitions.                     

I am definitely a fan of wide open spaces and geometric shapes, so obviously I adore all of these photographs, but what about you? Too bland or just gorgeous?
