This is a discussion on BOA Plazza within the Black and White - Monochrome/Monotone - photography forum forums, part of the Photography & Fine art photography category; I managed to get only one exposure before being ask to leave. Sure would have liked to tried one more ...

    Default BOA Plazza



    I managed to get only one exposure before being ask to leave. Sure would have liked to tried one more at about 30 sec. longer.

    wonderful image - why were you asked to leave? Were you on the their land or the sidewalk?

    I'm a non-confrontational person but I'm not sure I would have left in this case if I was on the sidewalk.

    Nice image! The b/w works well here. The building looks almost transparent.

    Mille grazie, Marko.

    Yep, all four corners of the building that lend themselves to this shot are on private property. One day, I'll tell you the story of the last time I was asked to leave the public area surrounding an industrial site. Wasn't pretty.

    Excellent image... silly people. They do make you tired. :(

    Here's an idea though... just for fun. You might try printing this up reasonably large, say 8x12 or even better, 20x30, contact someone in the building and deliver a copy to them. I wonder if that would change their mind in the future? Maybe this is something I'll try the next time I get accosted by security.

    Nice shot! A very interesting building. I agreee, it has a transparent look to it that makes it look pretty cool!

    Wouldn't surprise me if they all have better shots than this one hanging on their walls already, but thanks.

    Way nice BF I got accused of being a terrorist for shooting down a subway tunnel not too long ago by security folk. I told them to watch "Dr. Stranglove" and check out the camera the Russian Ambassador was using to image the War Room! That's what I'd be using dontchathink!!!!
