Day 9

The city looks so different at night.

I have taken dozens of photos of this building, and this sign. It is a staple of the Minneapolis skyline.

I haven’t thought much of the other images I have taken of this building.

But the one I took tonight came out exactly how I wanted.

I believe it will find it’s way into this project somewhere. For now, it is here.

Sometimes, you just have to look at something a different way, at a different time to find the answer you are looking for. Sometimes that means you have to look up.

    A striking photo. It has features I like: the vertical towers reaching towards the sky, then the horizontal platform, then the sign stopping the eyes from going out of the photo. Great composition. The more I look @ it, the more I like it!

    I love this image. And you are exactly right. Sometimes you have to look at something again and again to find what you are looking for.

    LOVE it – very unique perspective. Sometimes you have to try something different for the results you want!!
