Point and Shoot Competition #133 - Architecture

As an architect, I thought I'd make that subject--loosely--the theme for the month. Something in what you post should reflect an architectural context, which can include a lot.

Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1" (some exceptions below).
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, interchangeable or fixed-lens 110 film.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close March 31, 2019 midnight EDT.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

I'm really looking forward to what you all will come up with.

Some samples to get you going ...

For your consideration.

I have a strong feeling I posted in the wrong place. Can you point me in the right direction?

A contrast between old and new (Pentax Q-S1, click through for exif):



Vesturgata, Reykjavík, Iceland, November 2018

Trendy 21st century boutique hotel (Black Pearl) built almost on top of 19th century boat house (Naust, a now-empty restaurant.)

Will my Panasonic lx100 photos be allowed or will the larger 4/3 sensor disqualify it?

covers the camera in question. The camera has a fixed lens, and the sensor is 35mm or smaller.

Thanks....

Here's the newly built Exhibition Hall at the Mystic Seaport . Was fascinating watching it get built. Taken with the aforementioned Panasonic LX100.

Iceland is on GMT but is much farther west so the sun rise is over an hour later than it should be. Sunrise that day was 9:42, solar noon is 1:11.
