Urban landscapes: the angles of windows


A glorious example of modern Ireland, this structure was designed by American-Irish architect Kevin Roche and shortlisted for an Engineers Ireland Excellence Award in 2010, the year it was completed.
Most photographers justifiably focus on the front, which looks like a glass beer can angling out of a traditional building. I made lots of pictures there, but then this subtle side view grabbed my attention – especially when I tilted the camera to create diagonal lines. I emphasized those lines by converting all of the jpeg, except the windows, into black-and-white.
