This is a side view of New Zealand's Auckland Ferry Terminal Building. Designed by Alex Wiseman and built by Philcox and Sons using sandstone and bricks, it was completed in 1912 for 67,944 pounds.
The Ferry Building continues to be a transportation hub for trains and buses in the newer building section with shops and restaurants in the older section.

An impressive building serves as a ferry terminal, Ray.
Well taken angle that show the big pillars and nice windows pattern, and a tower on top's.
The baige/orange tone in contrast to grey/blue sky.
Fine taken on bright daylight.

Cool building, and there is one on Dublin that looks very similar! Main difference is the one in Dublin is in a row of oth buildings, not standing alone like this, and this being all standing alone makes it look very unique to me. The colors and general shape of it makes it look a little like a building from a cartoon.
I notice that the building seems to lean slightly too, not the image as the ground level is perfectly straight, but is the tower on the roof perhaps pulling it over? Move over leaning tower of Pisa, you have competition now in new Zealand!
Very nice architectural post.
All the best

What a lovely architecture picture with this building with the tower to the right side. Sharpness and clarity make the picture very attractive.
Excellent perspective and depth too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

what a fantastic building. Love the architecture, the colors and the size of it. I like old buildings like that and I would like to take a photo of it.

This looks like a San Francisco architecture. I like old classical type buildings, they are more beautiful than the boxy modern ones. Love the colors and it has good details. Well done, tfs.
