Chrysler Building-Dirty Window by yori1976 Chrysler Building-Dirty Window by yori1976
The famous Chrysler building in Manhattan, as reflected in a much less famous window.

I was lucky to be at that spot when the light was right and look up - I try not to make "me-too" images, but find a new angle...

It is not grainy or anything - just a dirty window...

Shot on the late Kodachrome 64 film, so it has nostalgic value too...

Larger file recently submitted to allow more print options, as requested - enjoy, you may now own your very own copy...

Thanks for commenting!
I love it because I think it doesn't overuse the distortion to the building original line, and the open window adds a nice twist...

That photograph feels like New York; the heat and the dust with the brightness of sun reflecting off the mountains of glass. Awesome shot my friend. :thumbsup:

Good to hear - I bid you well!
I have lots of work with the new baby and my job, but all is well (except for the weather - Israel is way too hot this time of year...

All is well - the job is not new, and in two weeks another engineer will join me, allowing me to spend more time on my main projects. I think I'm heading towards a good period in my life - I wish the same for you!

This photograph is spectacular.

It's rare to find a photo that does such an interesting building justice.

Thats a really good image!!! I have a few pics of the Chrysler building in my gallery. I love how unconventional this one is though.

I don't know if you know Thomas Kellner, but you ought to check him out. You represented his style in one exposure. :D
So this photo is great, I like the way you put a famous monument in an other dimension! :#1:

His images are much more planned, though - they are composed from contact-printed film strips...
But I appreciate both the similarity and the comparison!
Thanks!

Heh! It came better you propably could ever expect! Interesting point of view - blurred urbanism is one of my
favourite style in modern art. Surrealistic!

I love the top left window, partialy open and reflecting the sky - I thinks it would be much more trivial without it, don't you?

BTW - how do you like my new avatar?

Yeah, that's right - without it picture could have been too "common".
And about avatar - I think it's great, but prepare yourself to change it from time to time. ;)

The problem is all I shoot these days is mundane things like kids and people - still life takes so much time!
I don't want all the still life to diapear from recent images - so what can I do?
I may open another account for this stuff, but that's more to follow up on?!

Thanks for the support! :hug::smooch::blowkiss:

B&W doesn't work that well - the red and blue seem to be important.
