Why We Should Cherish the Beauty of a Building

January 22, 2019

The Bank Building - Belfast Nov 2018 (after fire damage in August)

The photo above shows the remains of this once magnificent building, with a heritage dating back to 1785, when it was constructed as a bank (thus the name).

A fire which broke out at 11:05 on the 28th of August 2018 in the building, leaving a tangled wreck.

It took all of 4 hours to reduce the building to this.

I always try to appreciate the magnificience of such structures and record them in all their glory. In fact on this trip to Belfast I photographed a number of exceptional buildings, namely, Stormont Castle, Hillsboro Castle and City Hall.

I hope you take a moment to appreciate them.
