Geometry



I have done something similar before, but I liked it then and I like it now.

This is the Hartford Steam Boiler building, also known as One State Street.

Brilliant. The perspective will change back and forth if you look at this photo for a while.

I struggled with it in school, but I'm getting an A+ on your photo though.

Very graphic and strong picture!

VP said...

I liked it then and I like it even more now!

I LOVE this shot! Perfect angle and perspective. This photo transcends the subject - although geometry actually is the subject, not the building. LOVE it!

And Jack, Panama hats might totally be in style in Connecticut. Down here, Rays caps are what's in right now! hahahahahaha

Halcyon said...

I love this one! What a great intersection of lines and reflections. I could look at this a little while longer and still see something new. Really creative shot, Jack!

Lowell said...

These are fun shots...you had a good eye to catch this just right! If only I had paid more attention in geometry class.

Luis Gomez said...

Really cool Jack!

Kate said...

A pattern of lines and angles with corresponding geometric shapes is always fascinating.

A very artistic photo. There is plenty to look at the photo.

Sharon said...

I love this!! Very well composed.

Love it! What a fantastic photo!

Randy said...

Very cool. I like the reflections too.

You are making me think of Bach. Perhaps because I see a mathematical photograph that I like.

Pat said...

Wow, this is an amazing photo! It's hard to tell what is the reflection and what is not. Great shot!

Lew said...

Delightful! Hartford is city with many marvelous reflections.

Ann said...

did you have to take many? This is perfect.

Jack said...

@Ann, I moved around for a while until I had a perspective that would be symmetrical. Then I took three shots. The biggest challenge was to get the center line perfectly vertical and centered. One was very close out of the camera, but I did a slight rotation of the image and then did a slight cropping to make it as symmetrical as I could get it.

Jack, I hate when you back me into a corner like that.

Virginia said...

Love the lines the angles. Good one Jack!

I love the geometrics here - you did a great job. But I also find that I love the colors, too. The lights, darks, and tones add just the right touch. Masterful!

Yes, I like it too. I go round looking for this kind of image.
