Camera: Canon EOS-20D

Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 2 seconds
Galleries: Abstract
Date Uploaded: Feb 5, 2006

This is the side of the Riverwalk Hilton Hotel in San Antonio.

The inspiration for it came from my good friend, another San Antonio dpc'er, Phantom EWO, who took a shot like this a long time ago. Even tho abstract is not my thing, I loved his photo like this and it stuck in my mind. As soon as I saw we were doing abstract, I wanted to try it (after getting the go-ahead to copy his work from Don himself :) [Thanks Don!]

It kind of reminds me of those Escher photos where you see totally different things when you look at them different ways. Since abstract is not my kind of photography, I'm not sure if this is even close to being what people are looking for, but I like it. . .so. . . . .here goes.

This is a great shot. The archeticture work perfectly for an abstract shot.

Very good abstract photograph, I really like the repeating pattern of this. My only small gripe is that I would like to see the vertical lines be veritcal.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2006 08:44:45 AM
This is a very interesting photograph. Almost an optical illusion that I can't seem to put the angle together. Great use of existing lighting for a night shot. This is excellent!! 10
