250 W Pratt at Night

Warren's encouragement prompted me, on my way back to the Light Rail yesterday evening, to stop and take some photos of one of my favorite buildings in Baltimore.

I used my new little GorrillaPod, wrapping it around a signpost across the street from the building. I set the self-timer on my Canon A620 to 10 seconds, which was enough time to damp out the vibration from me pushing the shutter release.

Rotated and cropped slightly to produce the dark triangles of "negative space" at right and at top.

Contrast slightly adjusted and converted to B&W with Picassa.


250 W Pratt - Again...

250 W Pratt Street - Baltimore, MDIt's the photo-architectural gift that keeps on giving!


250 W Pratt - Abstract

250 W Pratt Street - Baltimore, MDWhen it comes to skyscrapers, Baltimore is an architecturally impaired city, but there are a few exceptions. This is one of them, one of my favorites in Baltimore, 250 W Pratt Street.

This 1986-vintage, 24-floor building was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. It's 360 feet tall (110 m), and its half-ziggurat profile and handsome banding make it a real standout any city would be proud the call its own.
