Probably the only subway station in the world where people come to…wait for it….GET MARRIED!
Almost forgot about this photo from Open House few years ago, a photo lost in the load of others. Not the easiest of photos to edit due to the high highlights and low lights of the shadows but I think I have it about right and balanced.
This was taken with my old 8mm Fisheye which sadly I don’t have anymore as the lens didn’t fit on my full frame camera when I upgraded however I do have the 14mm version which is a lot better and I am sure would capture something very similar to this.
I probably won’t be visiting City Hall this year as I have been here a few times and it is one of the most visited and well photographed locations on the Open House circuit.
I hope you all have an awesome weekend!
The building encloses an elliptical central space 133 m long by 101 m wide. It is ringed by 34 rows of seats supported by a vaulted construction. It has a capacity of 16,300 spectators.

An old photo this one but one to add to my ‘Conception Fabrication’ architectural series. I quite like the interesting shapes and the face at the end of the tunnel of this fabrication that I have done. Its such aa good way to edit a photo that you would not have edited via conventional means, I have probably got enough now to put into a gallery which I will do in due course.
You may have noticed that I have decided to tidy up and streamline my description on my flickr uploads as I feel sometimes the story of my photo can be lost within all the other information I have provided, do you agree or did you prefer the old way?
Fear not, don’t worry my little story behind each photo will remain as I know a lot of you like this part of my photos and of course I enjoy this part the most!
Let me know what you think and if you want me to go back to the old way.
I have been sitting on this image for a while now, I must have edited it 10 times or so and never been happy with it until this latest edit you see here and one that I am finally happy with.
What you are looking at here, well, some of you may say its a spiral staircase but strictly its not if you look closely. It gives the illusion of one I suppose but actually isn’t.
It was quite hard to take the original photo and get it framed in the camera as you are literally on top of the circular opening, you need a very wide lens. I didn’t want to use my Samyang 14mm as this would have given too much distortion in the overall image so I went for a slightly tilted POV. Agreed you do loose a bit from the tops and bottoms but I feel its a compromise and works with the circular structure.
