Glass globes

Like yesterday's doorway, this shot was taken at the Christian Science Center. You can see a different view of this space here.

Seen this way, the place would be a perfect set for a SCI-FI history..

I like the perspective in this one; looks like you either used a wider angle, or used a zoom at the wide end. I love wide angle lenses.

Re. your question on scanning old shots. I use a Minolta Dimage scanner which scans 35mm negatives and 35mm slides, I don't scan the print. I have tried scanning prints on my flatbed scanner, and they always come out with a line pattern from the scanner head; that may be my scanner and some better ones might not do that. It takes time scanning the negs, but I much prefer that method.

I agree with everyone else, the perspective is great in this shot!

Back in the mid-70's, I was in charge of a convention at the Sheraton-Boston across from the Xtn Science Center...

I did wander about in the Xtn Science Center, but remember almost nothing...

So, thanks for the glass globes which most certainly would shed some light on the subject should they be turned on!

An almost monochromatic image with few patches of color and a contrasting geometry of lines and round shapes.

Looks like the pool has been drained and there's no ice or snow at the moment.

I, too, like this perspective the best. The curved lines make the image more interesting to me and keep my eye in the photo longer. The people give the picture nice scale and I like the way you caught them in the light.
