Waiting on Spring by catch---22 Waiting on Spring by catch---22
...and needing some warmth.



----------
I wonder how many people in this city
live in furnished rooms.
Late at night when I look out at the buildings
I swear I see a face in every window
looking back at me
and when I turn away
I wonder how many go back to their desks
and write this down.


~Leonard Cohen

reminds me of louis kahn's architecture.

it's a work of I.M. Pei... funny, but I was in Kahn's Kimbell Art Museum this past saturday... a truly significant work and a perfect place to experience the work of other masters.

i just checked kimbell.. it's so sad that concrete is perceived somewhat synonymous with russian brutalist architecture and is being neglected a lot by modern architects for this reason. i think it's the perfect material especially for museums and cultural centres, if used in a more natural way, like kahn did.

I agree, used correctly it allows an amazing range of freedom of expression.

Lovely shot. What type of structure did you take the shot from? The tree looks like it was made just for that spot ;)

Great shot.

I like it when its cold.
Can put on sweaters and other items and eventually feel comfortable.

When its too hot, even wearing nothing does not help.

Aren't we all? We still have snow on the ground here. Just back from the Highlands where it was cold but only the hills had snow.

Anyway, lovely composition.
