..here’s the view of downtown birmingham from the vulcan park statue i posted yesterday..
..you can’t see the statue from this pov..
The Vulcan statue is the largest cast iron statue in the world, and is the city symbol of Birmingham, Alabama, reflecting its roots in the iron and steel industry. The 56-foot (17 m) tall statue depicts the Roman god Vulcan, god of the fire and forge. It was created as Birmingham’s entry for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (1904 World’s Fair) in St. Louis, Missouri. It is the seventh-tallest free-standing statue in the United States. (wiki)
..nick asked me how i shoot these.. well, i basically focus, meter, then bend backwards (i never lie down on the ground, i sometimes leave the cam on the ground) and shoot.. i usually see people looking up to see what i took a shot of and then looking at me like i’m an idiot..
When opened in 1930, the Merchandise Mart or the Merch Mart, located in the Near North Side, Chicago, Illinois, United States, was the largest building in the world with 4,000,000 square feet (372,000 m2) of floor space. Previously owned by the Marshall Field family, the Mart centralized Chicago’s wholesale goods business by consolidating vendors and trade under a single roof. (wiki)
