“Reflecting Angles”

On a recent foray out into the wilds of Ann Arbor 😉 , I went in search of architecture, and architectural details to photograph.

There are so many great opportunities for all types of architecture there! Historic, modern, art deco, and just about anything you can imagine. All within a few miles of each other including on the Central Campus of the University of Michigan.

I love to get angles of many types of subjects, and of course of those is buildings. This image comes from an area of the C.S. Mott children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor.

It was a very busy time of day, on a weekday. Which probably isn’t the best time for shooting, so I spent my time focusing up rather than down. I liked this angle not only because of the lines and shape of the structure itself, but for another reason. What started out as a cold, but sunny winter day, suddenly transitioned to a cloudy and snowy one! What you see in the upper left hand side of this image, is an area of clouds, which was the leading edge of the transition from sunshine and blue skies back to clouds and snow.

The beautiful blue of the sky was reflected in the windows of the structure, which I really liked. I continued to do many different shots as the sky changed, but this one is my favorite because of the timing. I also converted this to a monochrome image which will be on my site. The monochrome also has a nice punch to it! Very deep and dark!

Stay tuned for more architecture!! 🙂

“Ford Mustang” mono

Well guys, I went to the Auto show in Detroit recently. Of course the show was totally packed, and pretty much wall to wall people, but I spent the whole day there and got loads of shots.

For some reason this year I was really getting into tail pipes, or exhaust tips. Of course I got shots of all parts of the cars, and of many types of cars also.

Dealing with the lighting at these shows as it flashes and shines on the cars is a real pain. All those bright and flashing lights look great, but not on an image of a car! LOL!!

Anyway, here is the first image that I processed. It’s the exhaust tip of a 2013 Ford Mustang. I wish I could give you more info than that, but I actually don’t know more! My son was messing with the Shelby next to me, and I wasn’t really paying attention to the details of the car I was shooting! 😉
