For today’s post I thought I’d try more of an abstract image instead of my more typical stuff.  This building is in downtown Boston, and I’ve arguably driven/walked past it thousands of times without giving it much thought.  The other day, however, I was in my car at a red light, and looked up at what was a really unique perspective on the building.  Thankfully I had my camera on the front seat, and I was able to grab a few shots out the window before the light turned green.  I opted for a darker, more textural look for this shot, as it seemed to fit the image well.  And by the way, I seriously considered calling the post “Jenga,” as the way the beams are structured reminded me of the game.

Camera Settings: ISO 400, f/11, 70mm, 1/100 second

    Love this one, Steven. It’s the first time I’ve seen concrete I beams. Wonderful composition, man.

    That looks really cool. Like an M.C Escher (SP?) drawing.

    I like the diagonal lines in this. Yes, it reminds me to of an Escher drawing – one of which I recall as a jigsaw. A nightmare to solve.
    This is a really strong composition – almost a pattern image. It works very well.

    It reminds me of Jenga as well. Its funny how we can pass by something so many times and never really see it. I really like this. Wonderful abstract.
