Type of Column

Can you guess what type of column this is?

If you like photographing architecture, it helps to know a little what type of column catches your interest. Many photographers take close-up images of columns to show the styles and designs of them.

Some don’t realize that there are three styles of columns–Doric, Ionic and Corinthian. Each has its own characteristics.

This is a Corinthian column. It has a leafy pattern at the top. It is a more elaborate type of column.

Columns are an important part of Greek architecture. There are some original Greek columns in Europe that date back to the 2nd Century B.C. (let me know if that is written correctly).

This Corinthian column was shot in San Francisco. Modern Corinthian columns are part of today’s Classical architecture.
