55 Farmington Avenue

This is a close-up of 55 Farmington Avenue in Hartford, an office building that houses Hartford Investment Management, the investment arm of The Hartford. 

I thought the curved effect, produced entirely from straight lines, makes the building an interesting study.

Interesting and well captured. The investment arm is appropriate.

You're right-- the curving lines are so interesting! I'd love to see the whole of this building. It looks beautiful.

Makes me dizzy. But most investment companies make me dizzy. Oh, wait, you're talking about the building! Yeah, that's dizzying, too.

Gonna play golfs tomorrow...you coming?

Ah...there are so many BAD old drivers in Ocala! It makes me want to pull what's left of my hair out! And in Stone Creek those dummies are driving their golf carts the same way they drive their cars. Some old lady damn near killed me with her golf cart a couple days ago!

Great building with its straight-line "curves" and chic color combination of teal and brown. Hartford has an eclectic collection of architecture, and all that I have seen is quite lovely!

Bises,

I like the curves and I like the repetition of the windows. Nice one.

Glass and curved surfaces always make for interesting images.

A very cool geometric, architectural photo! And to think I almost missed the photo of "The Hartford" which invests some of my clients' $$$$!
