I couldn’t wait to get home and review my images.
I spent the day at Tower City Center – an indoor shopping, casino and business complex situated on Public Square in downtown Cleveland.
The center is graced by a magnificent skylight, a circular glass dome and ornately decorated Beaux-Arts ceilings, windows and doorways. In addition, from the Observation Deck on the 42nd floor of the landmark Terminal Tower building, I had a bird’s eye view of the city’s skyline and Lake Erie shore. I just knew I had created something gloriously dramatic.
And yes, there were a handful of images that successfully captured the striking architectural wonders of this facility and the views from on high.
But it was this quietly subtle image which became one of my favorites from this photo outing. This image, where the spectacular glass dome is just out of sight, only its partial reflection visible. We can feel the lofty space above our heads and sense the streaming sunlight. It holds the promise of something more.
A reminder that a whisper can be as arresting as a shout. A reminder to see beyond the obvious subjects and to keep searching for the story that speaks to the heart.
