Architecture #1

Building in black and white

I pass by this building every day on the way to and from work. Was on the escalator up when I noticed the reflection of the clouds on the building and knew that I could not pass up the opportunity to photograph this so I backtracked and made a couple of shots. So glad that I did. The clouds look like they’re passing through the building and I’m very happy with this image – made my day.   😊

 

NOTE TO SELF

Architectural photography tips:

  • Shoot in a variety of weather conditions and times of day.
  • Be sensitive to the direction of light.
  • Look for a unique angle.
  • Reflections add an extra dimension that allows the building to be playfully distorted.
  • Position yourself as near to the base of the building as possible and shoot straight up.
