Intersecting Buildings?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 November 2020 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Spotted while riding along Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois. I love how the reflection of one building makes it look like it's intersecting with the other. I was going to post this image in black and white, but the reflections turned out flat against the facades with not a lot of depth.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States, so I will be taking a break from posting tomorrow. We have a lot to be thankful for after this crazy year, especially our health during this pandemic. I will see you all back on Monday!

It really is quite an illusion, Steven, isn't it! Do enjoy your Thanksgiving, staying safe and healthy. We DO have so much for which to be thankful...including the transition, finally, of our President-Elect!

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

there are so many grid lines it is hard to parse this. i especially like how the (sort of) vertical edges line up, strengthening the illusion of connection. This seems hard to do, since the buildings are key-stoning toward each other. this is an eye-catching departure from your usual perspective-perfect and detail rich architectural shots. keep on truckin'

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

A spectacular image. Those buildings are amazing. The reflection adds so much depth and interest. Beautifully photographed. I love it!

Darkelf Photography from Perth, Australia

Great vision and conceptualisation in this photo. I like how the reflection of the wide building extends it over the tall one to the right. Then the reflected warmer structures add another layer of depth and dimension. Superb!

Elizabeth Buckalew from Flagstaff, United States

What a terrific effect!! Well seen and an excellent photo!

Ce reflet est admirable en effet et tout à fait réussi pour une image prise à la volée, si je puis-dire.
Bravo et bon repos à l'occasion de Thanksgiving.
