It was light out but under the bridge it was dark except for the rows of LED lights reflecting against the whitewashed concrete. The lights are a new and welcome addition and added the white to this black and white image.
It was the colours and the dirt that made me stop and look. The sign says private and someone left a shopping cart there. It was all interesting and I thought I could make an image out of it. Stop, click and go.
The other morning there was a spectacular sunrise. The colours were amazing as they reflected off of the glass clad city towers. As I looked up I noticed a sliver of the moon. It was a game. The sun was rising to chase the moon across the sky.
I find myself in this building eight or ten times a year. These stairs are not used much because there are lots of escalators and elevators. Many people are carrying bags so they don’t want to use the stairs.
I like going where others don’t. Explore the quiet parts of the building. On my most recent visit to this building I had some spare time so I thought I would explore the stairs and see if I could create a few images. I like this image although I have a few ideas for some different perspectives. I will be coming back in just over a month. Hopefully I can create something new and different.
Here is another image from a university campus. I find most university campuses very beautiful in the spring, summer and fall. There is lots of outdoor green space and big beautiful trees. Everything is so well maintained. It is a great place to go to escape the city and traffic. A great place to relax in the shade of a large tree.
I love old buildings. The skill of the trades that built then are amazing. The sandstone detail work on the building had me looking for a while. Jost the detail in the multiple arches would have taken some time to complete. Each brick is carved to meet the next and so on. Just wonderfull.
I was leaving a building at the end of the day. I took the stairs instead of the elevator. That decision brought me to this scene. The sun setting behind these tall trees all neatly framed by this window in the stairwell. I stopped and watched for a while the made an image. What a view.
During back to school shopping i found lots of interesting subjects. I really liked the zig zag lines formed by a table full of binders. I got some strange looks as I created this image but I also got a great image. It was worth the looks.
The lines of a building backlit by the sun. Looking at the shape the architect wanted me to see. bold lines, mirrored shapes. This is what is pleasing to my eye.
A cold rainy fall day. The people move quickly through the raindrops. The fall colours reflect in the puddles. The chill in the air reminds me that winter is not far away.
