"dignity of the pyramid"

Posted by

Do view the Larger for the fascinating details of this modern "pyramid". And here's another corner and a colour capture. Just couldn't help "looking up".

Two ifc, Central, Hong Kong

"A subject placed squarely in the centre of the frame, if attention is not distracted from it by fussy surroundings, has a simple dignity which makes it all the more impressive." Bill Brandt

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

I seem to remember reading someplace the building is cooled using seawater and that you should wait no longer than 30 seconds for the elevator. It looks comfortingly substantial, too !

Can a building be masculine....? I think that this magnificent example must be. A superbly attractive building, and a technically excellent image.

I feel as if i were riding this big horse of a modern architecture ! What an angle to break your neck & get the best. Bill Brandt whom i love the pix of (too ;) is so clever in his quote you illustrate with your natural elegance, whatever the concrete massive subject or not, impressive is the very word for sure ! Let's ride to the stars now & you have a relaxing w-e*
