The eponymous photography.
The huge and the lonely.
The dark and the beauty.
The still and the moving.
Everything is there, the words are escaping from my mind, all that is left, is here.

Le cadrage est très réussi. Cependant, peut-être aurait-il fallu forcer un peu le contraste ?
Les vitres de la BNF mozaïquent l'effet miroir, cela met en valeur toute l'architecture de ce monument, pourtant si contesté.

Tient la bibliothère de l'autre... Je me souviens d'une bonne soirée sur une péniche pas loin avec quelques copains de DA ;) Très bonne composition et bien vu le coup du piéton qui donne une très bonne idée du gigantisme du batiment, en fait il fait même encore plus grand qu'en vrai je trouve ;) Sinon je suis assez d'accord avec Gillac-Lucibel, un peu plus de luminausité aurait été pas mal :)

très manifique. j'aime la réflection, c'est beau...et...uh...uhh...oh nevermind, je ne parle pas francais, or at least je parle francais très très mal but at least i'm trying. (i imagine you're laughing at me right about now...)

okay, so my awful attempts at french aside, this is amazing. i love the colours and the way the building dwarfs the lone person--it's a really fantastic take on architectural photography, and i enjoy it a lot. also, the clouds...just beautiful.

It is amazing the images we can get from looking at reflections, ne? Such a wonderful opportunity to see one that large!! It's a beautiful shot. :) Citizen irrelevant, eh? Would that refer to the hugeness of the building, so that people in general, in light of this sort of high-rise construction, are not considered? Or perhaps meaning the individual in front of the building itself...

why do they put this sort of common things on daily deviation?

While I totally admit that this photo may not talk to you, I'd like to point out that its point of interest lies in the person walking below. There's a message conveyed, which tells that our creations are becoming inhuman, and then you could think that if our creation are a reflection of our society, maybe it's time to ask ourselves what matters?
Reply
:iconmisschristina:
missChristina Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2005
ha! you think? I, on the other hand, think it always has been time for us to ask ourselves these questions...it's in our nature to want to know, to want to understand. neither that modern building, nor the time in which we live aren't at all what make me want to question the significance of life. what does is something that comes from within, it is timeless, spaceless and universal for man. That is why for me your little idea conveyed within a reflection of matter does not stand out from its hiding place at all.
A wonderful capture, yes. My eye is atracted by the man in a black suit standing at the base of his creation, looking so small that you would never think he is the creator of such grandious things, yet to me it just symbolises "The Tragedy of Creators", of any creators outshadowed by the product of their own minds.
