many thanks for your comment. Though I didn't think of Hopper when seeing this, I like a lot how he deals with light and leans on "photographic" compositions. Besides the 1960's architecture of this building, the light caught my eye (and how the illuminated interior merges with the reflections of the outside).
Funny, it made me think of Hopper's Nighthawks, so I wasn't imagining it upside down but rather in color. Even without the color, though the shape of the paned glass just sort of took me there. Instead of people in a diner, you've got light and reflections bringing your scene alive and the various patterns throughout provide a nice photographic texture.
I really like the way the wall curves around leading to the bright entranceway. Funny, I think this would work just about as well upside down.
Upside Down Thought I'd give it a try.
Jack what a cool idea.. it works. something about the angles in this photo the different shapes it really works no matter how you look at it
big thanks for your thoughts and ideas! Cool idea to turn it upside down - in fact, these weird concrete lamp shades look to me like little volcanic craters - so, the 180 degree turn suits to this mental image.
