What a beautiful picture!

B/W is perfect here, it sets a particular atmosphere.

The monochrome here emphasises the massive strength of this building, Jim. It is good to be able to eliminate the diversions that colour introduces and just to concentrate on the major element of a photograph.

That's an interesting architectural piece. Looks like a good place for holidays! (Smile)

Its a gorgeous photo, perfect for B&W, but I must admit, the building seems a little creepy to me!! LOL Your angle is great too!! Nice work!

Nice B&W rendering. The building reminds me of a ziggurat.

Thank you for all the comments. This is a new building built just southeast of Utica Square. It is a mixture of commercial offices and condominiums. My first impression was that it looked like the Tower of Babel.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and thank you for the compliments. You beat me by about 5 years with your Spotmatic. I bought mine in 1970 in Phila. Loved that camera. My normal lens was a Super Tak 105mm. Great optics.

I bought another used spottie on ebay a few years ago. My main gear is Nikon film cameras led by my magnificent F3HP.

I shoot mostly B&W film and process myself in Diafine. Though the hanging flowers image is a conversion from a color slide scan.

Look forward to your visits.

I agree with your comment concerning the Tower of Babel! There is a certain monstrosity about it in relation to the rest of the dwarfish landscape. But in monochrome, the building window patterns become quite fascinating!
