The New Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and
Something tries
And starts to climb towards the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to the land
And no one crosses there alive
And no one speaks
And no one tries
And no one flies around the sun
And now this is the day you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streamin in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.

Post Challenge: Wow! Yay! Hurray!
Thanks everyone! And if you are in Boston, go check out this great new Museum!

I didn't vote but in scanning through all the images in the challenge this one definitely caught my eye.. it's wonderful!

Congrats on a great photo - really good score in a tough challenge. I really like the "negative space" - the ghoastly area of reflection and water, really plays nicely with the title and the lyrics. I think the timing and lighting was perfect. Too dark outside would have made the inside too strong. Fantastic job, congrats again.

Woohoo, well done Adine. I can totally see this as a potential Pink Floyd album cover.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2006 12:32:24 PM
Amazing how the inside melts the outside. Or was it the other way 'round...?

You've made me put the record on (it's playing right now), it has been a while since I last heard it.. and it was a favorite of me back then! ;)

This is spectacularly beautiful. Do you know I'm a retired architectural photographer? I'd be happy to have this image in my portfolio, back in the day. I have GOT to get up to Boston and see that building. For that matter, how's come you and Magnus have never come down to the Cape to visit my marshes with me? Congrats on the ribbon!

nice study!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/26/2006 06:20:19 PM
Nice idea, think you could have done more with it though, waited a little bit till it was a bit darker to get a more stunning sky and maybe taken this from the ground up and also not cut off the people that are in the left of the shot so abruptly? Good effort and got a 6 from me.

I have no idea if this fits Pink Floyd or not, but the photo and title is a wonderful combination. Great job to see this image and better still in capturing it correctly. Well done!

Nice idea. I would have liked to see the same amount of space on either side of the window, though... i.e. a tighter crop on the right and possibly a vertical orientation.
