Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow (II)

Angles, angles everywhere — and shadows are a natural accompaniment.

Staircase of deck in the new Stone Hill Center designed by famed Japanese architect Tadao Ando for the Clark Art Institute, that gem of a regional art museum in Williamstown, MA. Ando is known for harmonizing his buildings with the site which contains them, and often works  — as here — in cast-in-place concrete.

The entire campus of the Clark will eventually be transformed under Ando’s grand master plan, including a wonderful water feature, which will be reflecting pool in summer and skating rink in winter! More shadow pictures in the next two days —-

    And it’s funny how it was taken in color, and comes out in grey scale —

    One of the best “shadow” challenges I’ve seen so far—

    I love the sense of the staircase leading down… it clearly has a strong direction (so many good lines and angles in the shot), and yet it feels open and mysterious; a very cool yin/yang balance.

      I love your description, it makes me see more than I did originally. You describe the cool yin/yang balance — I think that’s a trademark of the architect, Tadao Ando. His work is REALLY cool. Minimalist, yet warm and beautiful.

I love comments! Thanks for coming by and visiting ---
