Ongoing love affair with the Vancouver Public Library. The building is just a bursting upward of curves and reflective glass. The textures of the materials are so great. Like sandstone eternity.
Shot in deep red sunset light end of day today.
Didn’t really get the lens correction right on this. I should really try it again. Plus blown out in lower right. Hmmm…too much of a hurry last night.
