Date Uploaded: Sep 6, 2009

I shot this yesterday on the way home from the Rittenhouse Square Farmer's Market where I had purchase the first flowers I bought in like TWO months. My florists hate me. Sorry...flat broke. Even Flatter.

When looking over what I had specifically shot for Waldo IV, I took a look at these just in case. It is the DoubleTree Hotel and I was shooting it for an abstract pattern shot. But when I looked at it I found Waldo. Hope you do or don't, whatever the case may be. I had a serendipituos (sic) moment!

Thought it was an excellent picture, but I only rated it lower because I couldn't see "Waldo". Now that I found him, I'd rate it much higher (an easy 8). Congrats on the ribbon.

Well done! This was in my top 3 for the challenge. I was impressed that not only did you find such a cool place with a person in the frame - but that there was only one person in the frame considering how many windows are visible. Congrats!

Nice patters. Waldo very well concealed.

This works great as an architecture shot, and if weren't for the person in one window and the lamp in the other, it would be almost an abstract as well. Very impressed.
