Transparency and Curves

Photo Thursday - Tranparent

The space within becomes the reality of the building. Frank Lloyd Wright

Another urban photo from Indiana. This glass structure spans a main thoroughfare in downtown Indianapolis and is the city’s performing arts center. This photograph was taken on an early Sunday morning (about 6:30) in June, 2007 when there was no one around. And I mean not another person.

    Very engaging. I find the structural mesh of cruved and rectangular panes a significant texture for a large segment of our 21st Cent lives. I am working on designs and trying to do this sort of texture or line usage with them. Something constructivist.

    Malylah: Thanks. I thought the composition was fun when I spotted it.

    Ellen: I thought of this photo the second I saw the category was transparency 🙂

    Nouveau Fauves: Thanks for the comment. I am always fascinated with your projects and this type of design sounds intriguing. Whatever happened to the painting you did of the women in the food line? were you satisfied with the end result?
