Hey Sam...great shot....it was one of those moments when I thought it was real then thought hey looks like a scene from Thunderbirds.
hm.. seems a litte blurred for me, but this might be a problem with my eye-monitor-connection :) i think the perspective makes the picture a bit.. ordinary. would have been far more interesting to take photos of the building in perspectives the normal viewer could never see them through
Have just found out about fotoblog - you are to thank for that - we are now getting the How To Channel here in Australia, saw your guest appearance today on the show. Your photo Gehry's work is amazing its so clear and bright feel like I could reach out and touch the buildings
hello all, a friend turned me onto this site and i find myself needing to check out the pics regularly. this pic however has moved me to comment. i love this pic...not sure why (i'm not a photographer) i just know that i like this one. maybe it's the clean lines of the architecture(model) or the crispness of the shot or maybe a combination of both...whatever it is, well done!
this is so cool, with facades going all over the place
I thought this was already constructed, until I saw the "trees." Cool shot..my undergrad is in architecture, so Frank Gehry is well known to me. Great architect.
I sent an e-mail to my gf in TO telling her she MUST tape the segment tonight. Looking forward to seeing it.
bah! too bad I'll be at work
How cool! It looks almost for real ;o)
What was your lighting? Studio equipment or just natural? looks diffused, very accurate.
I think the shot has real meaning and though it is not quite clear I think that the desperation of the shot pears through to the audience. It is amazing and is one of the more measurable brilliances.
I really like this shot, well done!
All knowledge is interrelated; all art is one. This shot awakens child-like fascination with miniature doll houses, the set designer's models for stage productions, the toy-train buff's intricately detailed cityscapes and landscapes. Thank you for the invitation to imagination. It's grand.
Sam, amazing shot! I was wondering how you brought the sky in this picture and had to go back to yesterday's pictures to understand it! :) very clever as usual ...
Keep up the excellent work, you're a source of inspiration for a lot of us and thanks for sharing your pictures!
I love the lighting on this one. I don't know what it is, but the entire image is so appealing. Very easy to look at.
totally awesome, I want to live in there...
that looks surreal! i haven't been to AGO since they had the colour something exhibit. maybe its time to go back and have a look. of course on wednesdays. :)
I used to live in Cambridge, minutes from this building. It's such a great building. I've photographed it a few times, but I'm not happy with the way they've turned out. It was great seeing this shot when I came to visit your site tonight. Very nice!
HI SAM, PERFECT. DID YOU KNOW THAT "FRANK GEHRY" RECENTLY SIGNED A CONTRACT OR LETS SAY AGGRIMENT WITH TIFFANY&CO.???
HE IS GOING TO ACT AS A NEW DESIGNER FOR TIFFANY&CO AND KIND OF REPLACEMENT FOR "JEAN SCHELEMBERGER"! WE ARE ALL EXITTED TO SEE WHAT HE WILL COME UP WITH.
i've been there!! i have photos of the building in the background when i was on a duck tour around boston- but i didn't find anything our about it...
but wow! now i do. very cool
I see my earlier criticism of housing quality regarding this and all housing architecture now, didn't make the list.
I'll say this now: When my age related macular blindness (AMB) progresses to a serious stage this is something like how an ordinary square style building will look to me. Very distorted.
I think they try too hard to be different and introduce many space problems. They're too far from the street of living in it.
Sorry, but I believe the housing industry is a cheat.
Hey Sam, I taped CFH and watched your segment... nicely done.
