Photographers are naturally drawn to certain subjects. White buildings are a definite photographer magnet. In the days when film and developer were the only manner of photographic expression, being able to control the high tones in a negative and a print was a sign of exceptional photographic skill and it was almost a requirement to have a white building in your portfolio. With the increased photographic control afforded by digital technology, that mark of technological prowess is no longer impressive as it once was. So now, we make the photograph for other reasons. I had similar white buildings in the Change of Pace folio, so this one didn’t make the cut. It also didn’t make the cut for the building’s owners. This scene no longer exists. The building was demolished less than six months after I made this photograph. The lesson? Make the photograph. You never know when the scene will change.
