Office Tower Art

  • by

This evening I was shooting a pair of office towers on the north side of Milwaukee.  It became apparent to me that the reflective surface of the glass panels that made up the exterior of the tower was taking on the same color and shade of the sky.  The result was this rather “Tron-like” look to the framework of the building.  A bit of post-processing and I’ve got this thing!  I kind of like it.

Soon the evening was revealing a half moon surfaced over the top of one of the towers.  I kinda liked that too.

Once the sun went down, the building’s window framework took on a new abstraction.  The lights directed on the building cast a crisp, colorful geometry that I found very attractive.  The single office with it’s light on helps remind us of the reality that this is an office tower not just an eyeful of fun.
