    A favorite sculpture of mine in a favorite retro 1960s/1970s modernist plaza here in San Francisco. I have featured it before, though perhaps only in close-up.

    This photo was taken with a particularly fun Hipstamatic film and lens setting. It works great for geometric and linear subjects that I often feature, but I suspect it is lousy for portraits or natural scenes.

    You have a way with the camera, I’m trying to figure out how you got the reflection if there was a window somewhere.

  3. Marg Says:

    Wish I knew as much about a camera as you do. But I don’t have the patience to learn stuff like that. That is a great picture and a great subject to. Thanks for showing us.

    That is so neat looking, modern yet otherworldy! I like the effect, :)

    I love the reflection! You did a great job on this one.

    Happy WW.

    The filter adds even more texture to an already vivid piece. The yellowing makes it look very old, or from another world…

    So is it the filter giving the reflection? Either way, I like it!

  8. CatSynth Says:

    Yes, the reflection is in fact part of the filter in this case.

    I’m beginning to get Hipstamatic envy. I love my droid, but I love the Hipsta effects. Very cool sculpture.

    «Louis» has somehow missed this sculpture at Maritime Plaza. Your treatment of the image heightens the effect of the geometry in the sculpture! Neat shot!

    This is beautiful.

    I played too. Mine are here and here.

    Great pic, and sculpture. It reminds me a little of the origami figure kids make. :O)

    It almost looks like you had a double exposure of the picture. It’s neat if you did it digitally.

    Wow so much texture!

    Happy WW!
