Urban landscapes: the spheres, exploded
ONE OF THE ENTRANCES TO THE PLATFORM INNOVATION CENTRE, CALGARY, ALBERTA
I’ve had my eyes on this seven-story architectural innovation for several months. Finally approached it a short time ago and found the massive size and high fences on each outside parking level to be quite challenging.
But one of the entrances had more than 30 chrome-finished spheres/balls suspended high above the doors and they definitely grabbed my attention. I made a few satisfying documentary-style pictures in the dim early morning light, then tried zooming my lens in and out during the long exposures.
The results were so eye-popping that I made a dozen exposures and picked the best three or four. This is one of the keepers, converted into monotone because there was so little colour in the scene. What do you think?
