Taken from a recent cloudy, rainy day in Chicago.
On our recent trip to New York we visited the Hammerstein Ballroom, located in the Manhattan Center, where we attended Hillsong Church. The Hammerstein Ballroom is a beautiful venue which hosts a variety of events and productions.
The pavilion with the funkiest name is also the most difficult to photograph, so, I decided to try a profile shot.
Let’s kick off 2018 with a view of Michigan Avenue, Chicago. If you can, you need to visit this oh so photogenic city, then, visit yours truly!
Sometimes you just don’t know where to look when you are inside the great Oculus, however, everywhere you look is kinda breathtaking.
The Oculus gives you an incredible sense of awe and vertical space and, the Oculus also gives you lines. Lots of lines. This is my favorite image from the series of photographs that I took on my recent visit to NY.
I wonder if this structure now qualifies as the “location where the most selfies are taken.” Half the fun of being here was watching all the photography going on!
The impact of space is interesting to me. The way boundaries, limitations, and, definition is brought to space results in an emotional, almost transcendent experience. Apparently, The Oculus has received mixed reviews, but there is no denying that it does have impact.
Oculus: 1. an eye. 2. Architecture. a circular opening, especially one at the apex of a dome.
It is a stunning space. This is the first of a few images from my time in Lower Manhattan.
Image numero 2 of this beautiful church in Port Washington, WI. I did try to go inside, but alas, the doors were locked.
