The Science of the Day

One of my favorite photos that I've taken in awhile. It just kind of makes me happy. The title is a reference to a Rush song, "Digital Man."

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Art! You've done it again :) why do i enjoy your photographs so much ?? :))))
when you get a book published (i'm assuming you will) you'll have to let me know, i'd be first in line to buy it !! :D

This particular photo brings up very bright but also crazy things :) it's sort of like this mad crazy scientist screaming something like "it's alive!!!" . But i also love how the focus is set off the poster and it leads the eye wander along the glass window into that neat wall

doesn't that black dot on his cheek bother you? i guess i can live with it :)

I thought briefly about cloning out that "dot", but in the end I decided to leave it for a few reasons. In print size it's easier to see that's it's actually a point of attachment for the banner, and it's also easier to see the other two attachment points. I felt like they just added a little bit extra oddness to the photo, especially the way that one was seemingly punching a whole in the man's cheek...and hopefully this would invite the viewer to inspect a little closer. So I left them in :)

When I first saw this through the DD, I thought it was a man gone crazy, having to be subdued through drugs in a special prison cell. I was really surprised to find it was a business man.

Who knows, maybe it's a business man who's gone crazy ;)

*steals his theme song back* :shakefist:

Hmm, you've got the contrast and colors perfect. And it's a very intriguing perspective.
welder's avatar
:lol: Sorry, didn't mean to steal your theme song.
