Chrysler Building

I spent some time on Sunday photographing a few of the Art Deco buildings in Midtown.  It was a bit past midday  so I was fighting the sun.  But the densely packed buildings provided me with an opportunity: to play the buildings off of one another, using the light to emphasize the different planes of the buildings.  Prior to taking this photograph I didn’t feel like I was getting much in the way of exterior shots.  One thing that plagued me was the limited perspective due to the proximity of tall buildings to one another.  So I found myself walking around the 375 Lexington Ave. building trying to get a different perspective on the Chrysler Building, looking up at the transfixing facade of repeating patterned tiles at 375 Lexington.   This is one of the images from that little exercise.  I think it is the clarity of the light that makes this image appealing to me.
