I guess you can say this weeks challenge helped change my own Point of View about the two pictures I have picked. To be honest, I really did not like them when I first took them, but when I looked at them again based on this weeks theme, I found them to be quite interesting.
The subject matter is one of my favorites, the City of Chicago. But this is not the view of the skyline that most people are accustomed to seeing when they visit this great city. When I took the photos, I was exploring the contrast between light and dark within one space, so I intentionally took the pictures while standing inside a darkened space, looking out into the daylight.
The photo was taken from inside a bar at U.S. Cellular Field, looking north through a large picture window. At first, I didn’t even notice the people sitting at the table to the left.
In the second photo I framed the city a little better in the window, but still kept the whole view off center. The reflections are from the lights inside the bar.
