Glass in Squares (垂幕)

Glass in Squares, originally uploaded by pamhule.
A perspective on the ceiling inside the Kogod Courtyard at the National Portrait Gallery in D.C. It's a beautiful atrium and the glass canopy is stunning. I found the grid and the curves of the canopy captivating; at some angles it gives off a 3D effect, which is what I was trying to capture with this shot.


  1. Nice optical trick...the impression of where the texture lies depends on whether you look at the light grey or dark. Neat!

  2. I think you got it Jens. The windows keep changing perspective every time I blink!

  3. Thanks all. The picture has grown on me too!
