Urban landscapes: like a mighty ship at sea

STUDENT RESIDENCE, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY, ALBERTA

The strong angle of this building, and the fascinating dashes of red, made for a compelling subject and I tried a variety of compositions, all of them intriguing – especially when I tilted the camera to make the building appear to be a tall ship listing against a strong ocean wind.
The finishing touch was keeping all the red and converting the rest of the photo into black-and-white.
