Look Up!

I forget to 'look up' when I set out to photograph. I'm glad I did today because I think this image is interesting. I pass this building many, many times a week. Today I was struck by the blue sky first, and then the chimneys. A quick turn around, a quick shot and a quick trip home. All in a day's work!

I really like the chimneys against the blue sky. A great shot. Is this a house in Amsterdam? Great shapes, triangle offset by many different rectangles! Maybe shapes could be your next thursday assignment!

I love your choice of cropping. It really offsets the geometric shapes of triangles and rectangles. Also love the blue sky contrasting with the red brick. Really great eye you have. I'm so glad you turned around and went back to get the picture!!!

I love the image, but blue skies certainly do help "make the image", don't they--especially after a string of about 11 days of gray skies. I like your composition.

I am thinking wow four chimneys must have been rich/ White.... ......perchance is it that white house on Guy Park and Northampton?
Nice shot using an unconventional perspective of a Great House

great photo.
next time we have a beautiful blue sky i'm going to find me some brick to photograph.
the contrast between the two is sensational.
