REFLECTIONS

By: Leslie Wood

Reflections

All of the photographs on this five minute slideshow were taken in one afternoon within a 200 yard radius.
They are mostly of one building, Frank Gehry's "Disney Concert Hall" in Los Angeles.  They attempt to capture the effect of changing light on the highly reflective stainless steel facades of this famous, much photographed, building.
The photographer also attempts to compare the effects the light has on the image in color and in black and white. You will therefore see many of the images changing from color to black and white and vice-versa.
