Monochrome photographs of a 'man-altered landscape' that are stripped of any artistic frills and reduced to an essentially topographic state, conveying substantial amounts of visual information but eschewing entirely the aspects of beauty, emotion and opinion,." "[...] rigorous purity, deadpan humour and a casual disregard for the importance of the images.

Things aren't always as they seem. Please, join the group and add your photos. A facade or façade (pron.: /fəˈsɑːd/) is generally one exterior side of a building, usually, but not always, the front. The word comes from the French language, literally meaning "frontage" or "face". The word can be used as a figure of speech to describe the "face" that people show other people, as opposed to what they really think or do.
This group is for photographs that are influenced by the New Topograhpics movement.

This exhibition was published in the book "New Topographics" published after the exhibition and republished in 2010. The new Topographics exhibition was comprised of works by Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, Nicholas Nixon, John Schott, Stephen Shore, an…
This group is for photos of interesting buildings and structures from roughly the 1950s-early 1970s. This group is NOT for "retro" buildings which are made to look mid-century or for mid-century houses. Photos of apartment buildings are welcome. This group is NOT for 1930s & 1940s Art Deco or Streamline Moderne buildings.
Some interiors and details are fine but the focus should be on the buildings themselves. The focus should be on the building -- not the photography. Preference is for full rat…
Join up for some Ping Pong :) I would like to invite you to shape a discussion in images, text, sounds, all as erratic as art itself. Let's be open for all things, create space.
Members and fans of one of the finest photography forums on the web.
This group is for vintage neon signs with representations of inanimate objects -- you know, all those things like hammers & saws, flowers & trees, glasses & bottles, food, shoes & hats, moons & suns, etc. It's fine if the neon is now missing from the sign. But modern signs (let's say, post 1970s) won't be admitted. It's not for abstractions (stars, hearts, arrows, etc.) but for more representative type stuff. If in doubt, go ahead and post your photo to the pool and I'll make the tough calls.…
in and outdoor
Corrugated iron architecture everywhere. Anything from fences to churches, if its made of cgi then it should be in here.
Tarmac in all its' varieties: cracks and clefts, road markings, patches... tarmac landscapes.
Stuff that's been dropped - specifically on the ground or on/in water etc. but most definitely not up a tree or your nose.
Must have some rigour in framing even if it's intensively trashy this may help, or not.
All images are initially accepted. Occasionally an image may be removed.
Please this is nothing personal and certainly try again!
Dropped Stuff is continuing on from Flickr.

all about pictures taken at night ...
.. für Nacht aufnahmen
.. pour les vues de nuit
PLEASE post just a couple pictures at a time. If you post a bunch, you'll push other night shot pics off of the 1st page and they won't get their moment to shine. ALSO, if you space it out, picture of yours will be at the top of the heap various times.
See, it's a win-win! :-)
