Associated Press



The current Associated Press scandal involves the Justice Department's seizure of telephone records of AP reporters in New York, Washington and Hartford while trying to track down leaks of classified information.

Hartford?  We rarely make it into the big leagues alongside Washington and New York.  Until this scandal broke, I didn't know that the AP had a Hartford office.  It is in the so-called Candy Cane building, Hartford Square North.  Why did I tilt the photo?  I don't know.  I just liked it better.

Hartford and scandal are two words that usually don't match together!

let's forget about these complicate things, I want to say positive words, I like a lot that "door", :) it's a modern building, huge indeed!
And you have sunshine!Here only rain, day after day, but I'm learning to enjoy the rain with more coffee and books around my chair!

I think tilted was definitely the way to go with this photo- it lends a bit of drama!

That is an interesting building and I can see how it got its name. I like your tilt to this shot.

You can tilt this building as you like and the nick is really a good one!

Crickey, I need to Google too.

I always like tipsy photos but in this case it took me a second or two to notice the candy cane!

Lowell said...

C'mon, tell the truth. You tripped and as you fell accidentally hit the "shutter" button. And your SD card was full so you had to go with what you got. Now that's a real scandal!

RedPat said...

We are all off to google. What a great pic - I love the tilt and the building is pretty cool too. I'm sure you knew I would like it. ;-)

Sometimes a tilt is called for!

An impressive building!

Ha! I like the tilt too, Jack. Scandal? Hey Toronto knows nothing about scandals. (Why is my nose growing longer?) Mayor Rob Ford and scandal? Couldn't happen. (Yeah, right!)

Interesting candy cane building!

Randy said...

That's one little entrance for a building that size.

You made a good choice. It's a lot more interesting this way.
