^ Thompson Center. Great space and very nice shot. B&W is a good choice since it is mostly about shape and angles. I can't believe our current governor wanted to shutter it, tear it down and sell the land.

Love this image. Where were you when you captured this frame?

Edit: From the High Museum of Art. Did a little Google Maps investigation of my home city. Is that ledge accessible to the public?

Edit2: just for fun, I added fuscia highlights for the parts of the map that are captured in DubR's great photo. Figuring out what parts of what buildings were being seen at what angles is how we discovered exactly where the shot must have been taken from. This was quite a fun exercise for my fiancée and me. Breaking down a cool photo, exploring the details on the map to discover a new perspective of the skyline we see every day from our front porch.

This looks like a Frank Gehry building... but I'm not familiar with it.

A few of mine from the San Diego area.

I love this building, the Theodore Geisel Library on the UCSD campus. It really does look like something straight out of Dr. Seuss.

I wish I owned a nice camera when I lived in San Diego. Everything I have from that time are jpegs from an old low res P&S. Doesn't give me much flexibility in going back to edit those images, and SD is so beautiful.

Did you put your watermark on this image before correcting distortion? Just curious why it's falling down compared to all the other watermarks.

Here are a few from the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle.

QUOTED IMAGE

I lived there when this thing was first buit, and called the EMP, Experience Music Project. Supposedly, it is to look like a smashed guitar. Most of my then fellow locals I spoke with were not very excited about its looks. I wasn't anywhere nearly as against it, and have since become a general fan of Frank Gehry's work. For me, my dislike was the "experience" inside of the Experience Music Project. You put on these headsets and walked around carrying handsets that you pointed at different exhibits, and would get prerecorded descriptions of what you were looking at, clips of performances, etc. I finally walked over to my roommate and told him to take of his headset and look around. Nobody was talking to anybody else, everyone in their own world not even looking at the people the came to the museum with. I dunno how many of you go to live music shows, of which many of these recordings were, but a large part of the "experience" is the crowd, the people you meet and share a moment with. The EMP was just so isolating. Now that it is no longer called the EMP, and is the Museum of Pop Culture (and I've long since moved away from Seattle) I wonder what the experience inside is like. I never really considered it the "eyesore on Seattle" that some of my colleagues did, but I really hated that experience in the EMP. How do you approach someone when everyone is engrossed in their handset/headset combo and not looking at anybody else? I suppose that back in the late 90s, EMP was sort of prophetic of what the streets of metro cities would look like 15-20 years later during rush hour.

PS - Lovely shots! And I am now a fan of Frank Gehry's work as I became even more familiar with it. I especially like the IAC building NY. I would always enjoy riding past it on the Westside Highway at night.

Indeed, it is the Ray and Maria Stata Center in MIT, Cambridge.

Well, dang. Very interesting angle & composition then. Because I am actually familiar with that building, just I've seen it so frequently from the front that I did not recognize it. Well done. You certainly captured the essence of the artwork while presenting it in such a unique way that I didn't recognize said famous artwork.

Thanks, it was shot from a terrace on the third floor.
