Sometimes you just know there is a photograph in front of you - if you could only figure out what it is. I loved the design of this building, the colors of the building materials, the sweep of that curve - there is a green curve as well. I wanted a shot that isolated the design elements of the building. I couldn't find an angle that eliminated the trees and landscaping in front of the building - I tried everything. And then, I decided to try working with the trees instead. I rather like how this turned out, perhaps better than the shot I imagined and worked so hard for.
Sometimes you think you know what you're doing - and if you keep at it long enough, you have one of those 'happy accidents' that prove you actually knew much less than you thought. :)
