Thanks, Tom.

After I shot the first image, I noticed that there were other interesting buildings with cool looking facades.  Looking at the buildings from the bottom up is rather a natural perspective in a confined place like Ginza.


Thanks, Knut.

Yes, the facades of the modern buildings looks like Sci-Fi items.

Akira,

they make for a great series indeed, each with a different graphic pattern. The shots are typpical of you, always looking up for clouds and now for tall buildings...

Olivier, thanks for kind comment.  I should be careful not to fall into a street gutter.

Interesting study of the geometric designs in buildings. As a plus, I had the feeling of craning my neck to view these images even though I'm sitting in a chair. Nice work.

I like this series very much. Will you continue?

Andrew, thanks!

Frank, thanks for the encouragement.  All these images were taken in a very small area called Ginza in Tokyo where the construction of the new buildings or the renovations of facades are going on simultaneously (the last image is of a relatively old building, as you would see).  That's why I could find these photogenic buildings and complete the set in a short period of time.

I'm not sure the series can be continued in the similar manner.  But I would be happy to take pictures of this kind whenever chances arise.

Very cool shot Akira. How did you get the monochromatic purple-ish colour?

Anirban, thanks!  I'm not sure of the reason for the purplish hue.  It was shot at night, and it almost started raining.  I guess it was the strange combination of the various light sources around me, light pollution reflected by the cloud, and the color of the facade.

Frank, thanks for sharing your impression.  I tried another version of higher contrast.
