<<< o >>>the geometry of waste (c) 7 comments + add yours

This shot was taken at the same time as these two but, for some reason, I didn't look at it at the time. It's the opposite end of the building to this one, and in many ways I think it may well be the best of the three. Let me know how you think it compares.

On another note: on Ryan Flynn's recommendation I took a look at a marvelous site today – Plateaux, by Markus Schafer. It's definitely worth a visit: I particularly liked this shot and this one.

Beautiful, with the sky in background, the lighting and the detais of the building, I could easily imagine this to be a photo of a space station in Earth's orbit.

Wonderful angle! Combined with the geometries of the building this image gives a real sense of vertigo. I agree with the comment that it could be of a space station.

There is no questioning the coolness of these shots, but for some reason this building completely freaks me out. I'm a migraine sufferer... maybe that it? Certain patterns and things just make me feel... nervous kinda. Then you throw in a skizzy angle and a dramatic sky, and you are really messing with my head.
Which of course is not a criticism. Hey, art should affect people right? :-)

If I had to choose one, it would the filtered black & white - although I too experienced the 'other-worldliness' of the latest posting:
HAL: Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?

Nice work!

Persian Students: I wish that I'd thought of that but I have to say it never occured to me. I can see what you mean though.

tiffany: my apologies. I agree that art should cause some response but totally freaking someone out is probably a bit excessive.

Fraxinus: I'm torn between this one and the black and white one.
