11th and Central Canal





Well, OK, this is a block east at 11th and Senate, but close enough...

These are all great. I especially like the repeating lines and angles in the top shot. Striking stuff.

You know, from the perspective of the first shot, one can almost detect the mill/industrial/warehouse vibe the architect was going for.

Thanks Rebecca! I've been experimenting with angles and shadows as of late. Fall seems to facilitate the best lighting for such shots.

cdc guy, I'd say its pretty authentic; this includes the strange eutrophic effect in the form of a thick coat of orange-ish red algae which the black and white doesn't capture well.

I think the dam is cor-ten steel, so the rust and algae both flow from that choice.

Even the new IU Med building (in the background of the first shot) keeps the old-mill vibe going with that industrial-looking ground-floor arcade of poured concrete piers.
