Room With A View.

When I was in art school, 35mm ‘film’ photography was still en vogue; well that is gone now as the digital revolution just came out of nowhere so fast. Anyway, since then every shot with my digital camera includes ‘important’ EXIF information hard-wired into the file. This obviously was not the case with film and the point here is I do not have any information or even a stinking negative for this and many other dated shots. The scan is OK, but whatever. This shot is from an office building in Downtown Miami somewhere circa 2002. I like the curving of the horizon which is actually just a convex effect from the lens. I also like how this kind of reminds me of ‘Sim City’ or looking down on little ants or tiny people from afar. Cheers.

If I had my own place, I would blow this photo up an hang it on my wall. The color is awesome, I really like yellow tints with many other colors scattered in the photo... just like this photo

Very interesting shot - almost looks like a model of a city with toy buildings and cars. You're right - the curvature effect is cool!

Circa 2002. You make me want to ask AD or BC, it feels so long ago. And as for the curvature, well it's nice to know the Flat Earth Society is alive and kicking...
