alive . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 7 May 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

The more I study buildings the more I am infused with their aliveness. In this building I saw the glaring light of late afternoon and, at the same time, the almost neon energy of evening light. I glimpsed the interior of the building as well as the facade that carried the reflections of buildings nearby.

(BTW, you might want to check out the free, live food and culture photography webinar next Fr., Sat., Sun., at www.creativelive.com featuring food photo journalist Penny De Los Santos. I've done several webinars given by creativelive and have never been disappointed.
