Study in blue

I’ve photographed this building a lot, at different times of day and in different weathers. I love the way it sometimes stands in stark contrast to the sky and sometimes—as today—almost becomes part of it. A few months ago, I was driving by with someone who said, “That building is such an eyesore.” A chacun son gout.

    I fully agree with Didier. What is this building, by the way?

    Didier – Thank you. The reflections are what I love so much about this building.

    Elisabeth – It’s an office building in Northern Virginia, nothing special.

    This reminds me of that Simpsons episode in which Homer sets out to do good and paints a building “a beautiful sky blue” -after which you see a helicopter heading for it because it blends in so well.

    Isn’t it funny how your favorite building can be someone else’s eyesore? I feel that way about a couple of buildings in Chicago.
