Empty Shadows

This scene may be somewhat familiar to those of you who check this blog on a regular basis, as I posted a similar photo at the start of 2011. The company I work for recently moved into a new set of offices in a brand new building here in Calgary, and most of the floors are still unoccupied. So, this past weekend I took my second trip up the stairs to the 45th floor (5 from the top) to capture a few more shots of the (almost) completely empty space. I can’t get enough of the long shadows the floor to ceiling windows create on the concrete…it just makes me smile.

Excellent perspective and fantastic processing with the lights, mate !

There’s a lovely warmth emanating from this picture – worth the climb to the 45th floor I reckon!

Awesome shadows Heath! Well done!

Hey Heath – nice job man. I like the way you composed this one. The diagnols pull you in and the contrast between light and dark strips is great.

I really like these long shadows and the pattern they form on the floor.
Great!

Those shadows are far from empty. Great job!

Lovely shadows; also really like that smoke which comes out of the nearby building. Did you get roof access as well?

Yeah this is a cool shot Heath. I love those long shadows on the floor. What a cool photo opp.
