Photo of the Week: "huddle up"

huddle up

This photograph was taken from the elevated platform at Dearborn and Van Buren.  The buildings in the shot, from left to right, are the Monadnock (1891–1893), the Fisher Building (1896), and the Old Colony Building (1893-94), the last of which was recently given a much needed cleaning.  The light pole in the center is part of the L platform.

I chose the title "huddle up" because I liked the idea that these three very old buildings were leaning in to have a conversation with each other, with the light pole as the quarterback in the middle.  That's pretty dorky, isn't it?

Nikon D90 with 16-85mm lens, 1/400sec at f10 and ISO400.  I had to dodge in the Monadnock just a touch, otherwise I didn't do a lot of post processing to this one.

Tight shot. I love that intersection.

I think "We're Gonna Get You Suka" would make a fine alternate title.
