Sunset In The Link Pt. 2

Looking South In The Link

From my Sunday evening around sunset inside The Link tunnel between Crown Center and Union Station at Pershing and Main. This shot was rather unintentional, as after I finished taking tomorrow’s photo posting, I went on my way to get situated to take the one I posted back on Tuesday. But in between those two I stopped for this one and was lucky enough to do it at a time with low enough foot traffic through there so as not to mess it up, as I was gathering several manually bracketed source images from the camera for eventual HDR/tone-mapping on the computer.

I thought it odd what’s seen in the left windows, which doesn’t at all look like what is actually out there, I see now because of the floor reflecting in that left hand glass. I had kind of thought the result was sort of similar to THIS PHOTO, although in that one from last summer the whole intent was for there to be a light duplication on one side from the other. Here it’s more a particle physics issue with how the photons behave, I guess. It was accidental and I didn’t even notice it until I was processing the photo on my computer. What you’d normally see out of the left window is the Westin Crown Center Hotel building.

Plus I thought this shot makes it kind of look like you’re in a tunnel and they’re coming to get you.

Sunset in The Link Pt. 1

Inside The Link

On Sunday I had a good time in the afternoon and evening getting some new shots just for fun. I started in the West Bottoms and ended inside The Link, the windowed above-street tunnel between Union Station and Crown Center. I’m actually posting my photos in backwards order, as this one was my final for the evening. I get a little excited in photographic terms when dealing with all kinds of shapes in front of me combined with the potential for fun light reflections and so on. I ended up using my fisheye lens for my three shots I took inside The Link (this and two forthcoming). Most fun I’d had taking pictures of something in awhile.

Note: I’ve updated my portfolio site’s home page with an updated slideshow of my stuff from August through end of December 2010. Click Here

Inside The Link – Pt. 2

Taken a few minutes after yesterday’s photo, looking east kind of northeast at sunset, inside The Link skywalk between Crown Center and Union Station.
