Monochrome Monday #2: Hoosier Daddy


"Hoosier Daddy"
Bloomington, IN - August 2005 (Click to embiggen)


Today I apparently want to look at institutions of higher learning. This photo came from the Great College Road Trip of 2005 and features a building on the campus of Indiana University, Bloomington. Too many miles and years have passed since I took it for me to recall what the building housed. (Any Hoosiers out there want to help me out here?) But I found the angles of the roof compelling. (Obviously.)

I like the lines here, too! Come on over to check out what I posted for MM this week. I did it in sepia this time. :D

My wife, Dragonstar, like these sort of shots for their design. We could well have done something similar when we were doing art in college.
That was a while ago.

Love the tiered lines on the roof! Quite stunning in black and white!

Mona said...

The slanting roof is indeed surprising, seeing the rest of the building has a flat roof.

I love buildings, I could have been an architect...

Well framed!

B&W emphasizes the geometric lines. The light against the roof 'plays'. Your talent provide unity to the composition. It looks a little severe, but I suppose it's its function! ; )

Very stark and simple. Excellent!

Nice ...

If this was a contest I'd be roofing for you to win ...

Wonderful shot. I don't know about this photographic meme (?) but I'll check it out. Good stuff.
