You see the beauty of photography? I've just finished breakfast (such as it is) and here, on the Internet, have now found enough glow for me to start the rest of the day!

Well spoken, Rob.

Actually, Rob has a point. I try to place logo where it does least amount of damage. Sometimes I can't do anything about it, short of not placing any logo on image.

As to not "quite right", that is true. That is why I said it was slightly askew. When you shoot upwards and off centre, everything goes askew. Notice the top windows do not line up and are not symmetrical with bottom windows. So I straightened and balanced as best I could. Architecture is one of the few subjects that needs to be shot wide with lots of room on either side to make it easier to do perspective corrections. I forgot to shoot wide. Without perspective lens and correct standing position you make do. Very engaging shapes, colours and contrasting tones. See below where I did not leave enough room on either side of windows in this alternate composition:( And say hello to lamp that is obviously trying to have a conversation with viewers.

I like it, John.
But as for your logo, I would be tempted to put the three letters in three of the windows, probably 1, 2, and 4.   ;)

Rainy Night Traffic. Shot while stopped in traffic long enough for me to stop the wipers and focus.

Slightly askew.

Really like that sort of imagery; wish I had the energy to go out on rainy nights. Wish I had the energy to go out any nights! Once the computer's wound up, that's it until time for bed.

Was it a rainy night in Georgia? You should develop this further. If I could get my wife to drive I would take lots of these kinds of photos. You can produce some interesting images, as you have done.

Some "freshly fallen silent shroud(s) of snow," with apologies to Paul Simon.

It was a rainy night in Northern Virginia, which isn't nearly as melodic.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Rob, you raised the standard of "abstract" to a new level with the dancers!

All in a morning's work, Slobodan...

No, that's a fib: all in the gifts we are sometimes offered. But yeah, no kidding, things come out to you and then again they don't. You have to take what you are given.

Thanks.

At my local car wash the "slappy things" (as my pal Susan calls 'em) are a dingy red/brown.  :)

When they saw Bob coming with his camera, they quickly dies the "slappy things."

Nice shot, Bob.

I'd not seen such stunningly blue brushes before. They must be new. I'm slowly building an impressive collection of unmarketable esoteric "upside down" photos. When the picture is oriented correctly, the blue "slappy things" remind me too much of Cousin Itt from the Addams family.
