Greetings Marilyn, great series exhibiting your fondness for geometry. I really like the interplay of angles in this one. The major movement here is towards a single vanishing point which really pulls it all together. Good work.

Greetings, Hank, and thank you. I've always thought that urban photography is not my thing. Give me a landscape, give me some nature, etc. But I had a great day in Toronto for a meeting with some time for photography. There were planes, lines, and angles everywhere!!

Very nice urban series Marilyn. Despite your insistance that it's "not my thing" your work says otherwise. It has always been my belief that if you have the eye (gift?) for photography it shows in whatever you capture, regardless of subject matter. Just my 2 cents(American) worth. Regards, Tom

Thanks, Tom, for your encouraging words. And as I think about some other Panoramio collections, I see that there's truth to them. Greetings, Marilyn

A wonderful composition Marilyn! The light reflects beautifully from the buildings. Looks like the planet Krytpon, only for bankers :-D


Marilyn Whiteley on December 14, 2007

Thank you, Alan. For all the times I've been there, I've hardly ever looked up--at least not that far up. I did Wednesday, and I was amazed! And yes, it's bankers' territory.
