This is just a skylight in MacArthur Center Shopping Mall in downtown Norfolk
It's a high-end, high-class mall . . .
I just go there to take pictures =]
I just liked how it looked in B&W with all the shades of grey from black to white

Olympus C-740UZ
skylight aperture priority; f 3.5; 1/400;ISO 100; 17:52:57 rush hour full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Cool shot! I like the geometry and the shadows. (like that's a surprise...not!) So - in this private high-end mall... did you get chased off by the security guards? It's happened to me so much that I'm very cagey now in semi-public spaces. Case the joint, assess the quality and frequency of patrols, plan the shot, get a couple of exposures, then dash... I feel like a criminal in my own country!

Fascinating Pete. Impressive abstract!

Awesome eye, nice blend of tones, lines and shapes. My brother and his wife shopped here while on vacation with us there last week, I opted out to go to Williamsburg. I love it there. Sorry I missed your message before I went to the beach on Sat. I didn't get there til later that night, around 8pm. I hated to leave.

Thanks Russ . . . mathematically, it might have that touch . . but I certainly need more weird bugs and caterpillars!! LOL!

And zymans . . they're on the floor giving me weird looks as I point the camera upwards . . . HA!! (that conjurs up a weird mental image, eh!)
Guest 19-Oct-2004 01:17
Hey Russ! Get outa my head! that was going to be MY comment!!
