Well...Tricky Dicky doesn't have a lot of friends, VZ, so it is wonderful that you perform this public service...
vz-nostalgia: I doubt that public cares much about my service, Ray. smile

You've no need to hide Vik: show yourself & face up to them!
vz-nostalgia: when all cards are on the table and the bullets in the gun, the game is over, Chris. smile

I wonder if Meier would like to play with Piano smile
vz-nostalgia: I'll see what I can do to force Meier to play with Piano, Ms. Iris. I must admit I'd rather play with Piano myself. smile
I have had to google Richard Meier, I prefer old, but he does do some fantastic buildings if the images are anything to go by, if you like modern. smile
vz-nostalgia: smile
Linda: I have had to google Richard Meier...
VZ: One more drop of knowledge in the bucket of your wisdom. Ms. Linda. smile

Linda: ...if you like modern.
VZ: It is not important for me, if teh buildings are modern or not, Ms. Linda. Duke Ellington once said: "There are two types of music, good and bad". I can say teh same about buildings. smile

Did you enjoy playing with him? because I'm sure he did with you...

vz-nostalgia: smile I adore these games, Ms. KA. See, I don't take pictures of the buildings, I reveal their hidden secrets, of which even their architects have no idea about. smile

I can imagine your, or his, fingertips and face peering in the opening. You must be playing hide and seek. smile
vz-nostalgia: I wasn't playing hide and seek, Ms. Suzanne. I was playing an erotic game with architecture. smile

A fascinating angle and perspective you did choose! Like Linda I had to google, the name sounds German, but he is an American architect, I read a lovely sentence by him_ "The most important is light. Light is life." Yes, it is right- and your b&w- photo may confirm that!
vz-nostalgia: Light is life not only in architecture, Ms. Philine. smile Meier's buildings are all white, not a single hint on color neither on the exterior nor in teh interior. I made about 50-60 shots over the period of a couple of years in different weather: rain, sun, fog... during the different times of day. The security guys kept kicking me out. They could, because it's a private property. smile Still I kept going and shooting until I got the picture I wanted. smile

this is one of your better bl&whs in my humble opinion...
vz-nostalgia: You have a very humble opinion, Ms. Cherrylane. smile
Do you think it's even better that this one:

from my prison window I see your signature rise above me, casting shadows that fall upon my face, is this ever to be my place.

love the photo. mal
vz-nostalgia: :
…the prison you confined yourself
is deep within you
the shadows that are cast upon your face
are there because I stream the light
how long you’ll occupy the place is
up to you now…
Fantastic! ♡
vz-nostalgia: me or the picture? smile
Well spotted, I like this.
vz-nostalgia: Spotted? smile No-no-no, Nig. Lots of effort was put into this, a lot of time to find the key in order to unlock the little door that holds teh secrets of the building. smile
i really want to know how u did this!
vz-nostalgia: Sure. Just let me know when is the next time you're coming to Atlanta, Ms. Toun. smile Then, over the cup of cappuccino at the local coffee house, I'll tell you all about it. smile
Architectural photography may never again be the same, Viktor... and it's about time, too! Now about the revelation of architects' hidden secrets, are we talking Meier, or you?
vz-nostalgia: The purpose of architectural photography is to glorify the Architect, Alan. I'm doing something totally different in my pictures of the buildings. smile I care less about the Architect. The Architect has no clue what I'm going to discover in his/her building. smile

"The Architect has no clue what I'm going to discover in his/her building"
okay, i like that thought, but i think that the building is trying to peek into your photograph.
vz-nostalgia: ...becasue I made it to peek into my photograph, Ms. Dori. smile

In the Mind's Eye.
Trifecta of architects.
Johnson/Burgee through Meier through Viktor! Or is the order reversed?
Great composition!
vz-nostalgia: hey... hey... easy now. smile I'm just a dot next to those names (in my own dot world smile).
