This photo is definitely one of my favourites of 2017. The symmetry of that place is just incredible. The dark hole in the middle of the frame, the not yet lighted street, seems to suck all the light, and the main character of this photo, into its emptiness. Black hole vs bright lines, the fight of the contrasts is still raging out there! The graphic component of this photo is just incredible, typically what I’m expecting to find from a new building.
I must say it’s a photo I didn’t plan at all. I was just out testing my just received Sigma 50mm ƒ/1.4 Art lens when I came by this new “The Office” building. Being a brand new architecture I was expecting to find something interesting, one can say I got served, right? Keep in touch, part of the site is still in the works for a few weeks, I plan to go back there and get a few awesome shots!
By the way, the Sigma 50mm ƒ/1.4 Art is a great piece of glass, a review may come soon!
