cornering light

My birthday present came 16 days early this year and I had to try out my new 10-20mm lens. This is the office buildings for Caltrans in Los Angeles. The security guard wouldn't let me use my tripod so this is handheld. You'll need to see this one large to appreciate it. Thanks for looking!


The red and white lights are meant by the building designer to suggest automobile head and tail lights.

    I am so surprised you didn't charm your way out of it. I love that you love your pressie. However, this is another "I really hate you Harry." shot.

    This is too cool!! Awesome lights and composition, looks like that lens is paying off for sure! Brilliant exposure and for handheld too, totally awesome! What is up with security, huh? Have a great day, my friend!

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Art Net Contemporary Artists Invite only P1/C1, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    I really like this, great hand held and the security was right.... the tripod could be a secret new rocket launcher!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Great architecture shots, Andy!

    Congrats! Ever since I recently got my 10-20 for my birthday, it stayed on my camera for 80% of the time. I love it. This shot is fantastic--excellent PoV and framing.

    Awesome light patterns, and congrats on the lens. (Is that the Canon 10-20? If so, I've heard great things about it. I can't remember what you are shooting with).
