If you're interested in seeing some of my pictures of architectural elements, I just uploaded some to my Flickr account. Many of these were in slideshows from my trips to Sweden and Denmark, so they may look familiar.
I use a little point-and-shoot Canon A540, nothing fancy. Just goes to show that beautiful subjects make beautiful pictures as long as you hold the camera still. Most of the photos are the raw files, so if you want to print them out you might want to fuss with brightness/contrast.
