The Grey Man Ponders Public Art

It seems whenever I have a photo of the Seagram Building, the same themes emerge. I’m not a fan of mid-century metal and glass architecture, but I love this building that arguably spawned the style, and I’m not a fan of some of the pieces they temporarily install on its beautifully simple plaza.

  1. You’re really pulling some nice compositions with the Grey Man, Mark. I like that right foot placement. And I agree, some of those pieces are as artistic as a light pole. But, oh well. 🙂 Eye of the beholder or something like that.

  2. You and your ‘Grey Man’ have got the art of positioning down to a fine art (excuse the pun). Excellent composed shot. But I agree – the artwork does look a little weird.

  3. I love this kind of idea…thank you for sharing with us…i know a lot of people will like this also..

  4. How the heck do you DO this, Mark? Your step in this shot is in the PERFECT place, as is the way you are looking at the artwork. This either takes a few attempts or you are a master of timing. Given how awesome this series is, I think I am going to stick my my master theory.

  5. Thanks all. It’s funny all the remarks over the foot placement and timing. I have some sense of the timing after I click the remote, but basically I just run each shot a few times, sometimes several, and pick the best one.
