It may seem odd to have a photo essay about the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington without any pictures of glass but in the next three posts I want to focus on the architecture of the buildings and it’s neighbourhood. The large conical building that houses the glass blowing gallery/workspace dominates the area with its textures and sharp geometric presence. The stark rhombus shaped stainless steel patterns contrast with the more organic circular form of the tower itself. In the first picture above I positioned myself on the bridge walkway so that the triangular wedge would cut across the cone, providing I hope, some visual tension in the image. I was also please with the way that all of these harsh geometric shapes and textures contrast with the soft shapes and textures of the clouds in the background. I pushed the processing of the textures of the clouds in Nik Silver Efex Pro so that they would be more obvious. The camera in the far right of the frame, and all that it implies provides an interesting counterpoint to the world that is illustrated in the next image in this series. Available in a few days.
