Compared to yesterday’s building this is quite a dud. A plain parking garage, with color veritably bursting from its access stairs. It’s just down the street from that beautiful blocky dorm, and I’ll admit that it is buildings like this that really catch my eye. That are good to play with.

Yesterday’s was pretty straight forward. Fit this giant whale fully into the frame while keeping some parked cars and other nuisances out of it. And if that’s done right, the photo will probably work.

But this parker is different. To show it in its entirety would probably dull it further. Make it look like it actually looks. With some subtraction and finagling I can use this building to make a photo that pleases me. That creates depth and a compelling (perhaps too strong a word) mix of lights and darks, angles, etc.

This one’s for the cars.
