Capturing Life's Beauty One Photo at a Time
Chicago has such an architecturally rich history. In this capture, the focus is on the distinct shapes, patterns, and colors of various downtown windows.
Just LOVE the composition in this. Fantastic shot!
Inga, thank you very much!
Love the contrasting colors of the building.. great shot!
Kasmango, thanks so much!
Really like the contrasting buildings and different reflections in the windows.
(personally I think I would opt for leaving the front grass out to make it even more abstract)
Thanks for the comment and feedback, Rondje.
Ok, I know this is going to sound really, really random, but my first thought looking at this picture was that the smaller building in the background is like a young child peeking out shyly from behind his parents. This shot is awesome!! And I know – I’m crazy!! LOL
Wow, now that’s an interesting take! Thanks for the feedback, Cindy!
Told you I was a little strange 🙂
great shot. taken from one of my favorite spots in the city!
It is a nice spot in the city. Thanks very much, Kristy!
Nice detail and color. And i like the inclusion of the bare trees in the foreground.
Thank you very much, oneowner!
Reblogged this on Conceptual Art.
Thanks for the reblog.
Pictures like this tickle my imagination and I wonder; who is in all those rooms? Are they apartments, office blocks? How many different lives and stories, live and have lived there, behind those windows…
I sometimes have the same thoughts and questions. Behind the glass and steel facade are real lives — people working, sleeping, existing — and each window representing an untold story of the present, past, and future.
Love the composition. The image captures your attention.
Thank you very much, Susie!
Thank you, Sonali!
Great composition and well spotted.
Hi David, thanks much for the comment!
Great photo, Brian! I love the colors and composition! Just beautiful!
Tricia, thanks so much for the kind words!
Great lines 🙂
Thank you, Bashar!
I really like this picture, the contrast and the lines are just very special. 🙂
Francis, thank you for the comment!
I’ve seen a doco on the art and creativity springing up in the empty industrial spaces. Must be exciting. I’d love to visit with my cameras/
Thank you for the visit and comment!
Everything about this photo is amazing! Composition, color, focal point, shapes, love it.
I appreciate the generous words — thank you.
Thank you very much, Mary Jane!
I really like the composition and the way the relatively bright colors of the smaller building contrast with the more drab grays of the foreground buildings.
Hi Jeff, thank you for the comment!
I so miss Chicago!
It’s a great city, as you well know. Thanks very much for the comment, Rasha!
Dear Brian, you captured such an amazing photograph… the colours, the contrast and the composition they are all so beautiful. This is great shot. Thank you, with my love, nia
Dear Ms. Nia, thank you so much for the wonderful comment!
You are welcome your photography deserves this dear Brian. Thanks and Love, nia
Brian, I love the color in this picture and the perspective. With the trees or bushes you are behind, it almost feels like The grass from a sand dune. I just imagine walking over this big sand dude with this tall grass and then being struck by a huge city! Very cool.
Thanks, Dan. I really like the color and lines in this photo, and thought the grass added an interesting and unexpected element. I appreciate your feedback.
Great composition and I love the reflections in the windows. I love the grass in the foreground… it adds depth and shows scale without ‘intruding’.
Thank you for sharing.
Thanks very much, Veronica. I appreciate the comment.
Oh… and thank you for liking my post. 🙂
I love the contrasts between the structure of the windows and the buildings and the randomness and texture of the grasses. Great colors too.
Hi Mark, I appreciate the feedback. Thank you so much.
Nice Italian windows !!
Fabulous composition, colours and light!! And I like very much the mixture of the architecture with the upper part of the trees!!!
Santi, your comments are always appreciated! Thanks very much.
Love all of the repeating patterns! The red is so striking against the monotones! NICE!
Thanks very much, my friend!
Would love to see a crop of this that eliminates the building on the right and crops out were the windows begin on the building to the left. Beautiful red color among the drab greys.
Thanks for the suggestion, Steven. I may give it a try.
Perfect … the way you composed this is so cool. Love it.
Thanks so much, Laura!
Great composition, the windows are so cool and silent , yet you can feel life is buzzing behind them… Love the dry plants in the foreground … The warm red contrast beautifully with the blues .. Nice angle ..
I appreciate the great feedback, Tarek!
