Design Patterns

From November, I remember reading a wonderful blog post from Moose Peterson about the Chambers Street Station in New York City. When photographing the textures of the roof and the columns that support it, he used words like tapestry and design patterns, not to mention shapes, light, and masterpiece. You can read his original blog entry here.

So when I was photographing the lobby of The Palace Hotel, thinking in black and white, I looked for representations of these descriptors. And I was struck by the following photo, my favorite from the shoot. To me, it embodies the best that black and white can offer for architectural photography, bringing out the contrasting wood patterns and emphasizing the shape of the structure. Thanks for the inspiration Moose!
