Distorted Views Of A Glass Wall



The glass wall here at the Convention Centre certainly allows for good reflections.

My title yesterday was in reference to the character Kang, a time travelling pain in the neck Big Bad where the Avengers are concerned. A terrific character, but let's just say trying to work him into a movie would cause no end of headaches.

  9. William, I'm always fascinated at the biuldings that have all that glass. The reflections are beautiful, but what about the construction and the safety?

  10. @Tomas: it was time for a changeover, and I picked that one out some weeks ago for the spring banner.

    @Linda: it was taken in Jacques Cartier Park on the Gatineau side of the Ottawa River last May.

    @Marianne: it can have that effect.

    @Janis: thanks!

    @Luis: thank you.

    @VP: it certainly is.

    @Geoff: it was time to change, and somehow the Tulip Festival seems very springlike and appropriate.

    @Tex: definitely!

    @Birdman: thanks!

    @Red: it never seems quite the same, one day to another, photographing there.

    @Linda: the glass is quite strong and well cared for, and it has a great network of steel beams keeping it all in place.

  19. Yes the diamond shaped panels really add that extra distortion to the reflections..I think I've said it before, your convention centre is so much more appealing than ours :)

  22. Wonderful shots again. Like I said yesterday, it must be wonderful to play with your camera, the light and the segments and lines in the wall.

  25. Those diamond shapes certainly offer the avid photography many a photo opportunity to get some unusual shots. And these photos are intriguing. Like distorted realities with creative flair.

  27. I too enjoy photographing glass walls and office buildings in large cities are always such good subjects. Sorry for not keeping up with recent blog posts, but even if I don't always comment, still try to read as many as I can but not on a daily basis. Thanks for your recent comments on our posts as well.

    And the glass in your convention center could be a source of endless photographs!
    (You're still getting snow?!! That's amazing!)
