Rectangular, tall and shiny


The problem with buildings like these is that you can't call them modern any more. They were modern 30-40 years ago, now they are seen as an embarrassment. However, it's all a matter of lighting. Find a large and bright enough yellow-orange light bulb and even 70s high-rise towers become blogworthy.

It's not bad, for sure it looks nice with the blue sky and the sun:)

The building put on it's best "facade" for you.
It is actually very interesting because it is unusually rectangular and seems so different from anything around it. Great capture.

It doth look a bit out of place in that context. But, as you said, 'tis blogworthy.

Nice shot(s)!

It's almost like the street is a sentence and that building is an exclamation point at the end!

Your commentary made me smile because it's so true, even though I never really thought about our definition of 'modern.'

Perfect lighting and you have a wonderful eye for seeing it.

Can someone tell this "cat" guy that "Be entertained" on every damn blog in the world is not commentary but a pain in the you-know-what!

My computer problems have prevented me from commenting on this until now, but I had to come back to say what a great quirky shot it is. As if it's looking rather surprised at finding itself out of its comfort zone.
