The Dalmatian building
May 10, 2018 • 1 Comment
I started my new contract at an engineering consulting company doing some IT work for their reporting system. I was captivated by the building across the road on my first day during lunchtime. It has patches of blacks and whites, it had the Dalmatian patterns all over and made wanted to photograph the building. And some ideas came to my mind. Just a few weeks ago, I bought a new photography gadget call the Lensball. When shooting with the Lensball, the image is flipped upside down. Typically, the flipped image is turned 180 degrees so that it looks right side up during post-production by a lot of the photographers. However, I think it is better to leave the original captured image so that it the upside-down image reflected on the Lensball compliments the Dalmatian patterns of the building.
Just in case you think the photos above were taken from a bin with Dalmatian patterns, the photos below show you that it is actually a real building.
I was not sure about the information about the building until I found out the news article about the building. The panels are in the process of being removed. I'm not sure if the panales be replaced, it should be. In case they are not, the keen photographers should visit the place and take some pictures before they are long gone. Or if the panels are being replaced, it would be even better to document the re-building process.
