Focal Length:24mm
Shutter:8 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Right There

I’ll admit it. It is fun to shoot buildings that are begging to be shot. Most of what I do is take rather unassuming places and coax something quite pleasant out of them. So giant objects like this are indulgent, candyish.

This is just down the street from MIT’s main column-laden epicenter, within which I enjoyed a splendid lecture by a visiting architectural expert on “Creative Spaces.” That C word has become rather a lot like the infamous I word getting thrown around everywhere, the dreaded “Innovation.” Both words meant something at some point, but now they’re but fluff, mainstream marketing. A quote:

“The problem is that the patina of Creativity is everywhere. And this patina is economic.”

Gets me thinking, and out of the house to shoot!
