Doors Open Denver: Terminal Reflections

View showing the airport terminal reflected in the hotel's covering of glass. Along the bottom edge you can see that active construction is still ongoing.



Here is a closeup detail of the rigging. I like this cropping better.

Doors Open Denver: New DIA Hotel Annex

As part of the 2015 Doors Open Denver tour we got access to the new Hotel annex at the Denver International Airport (DIA). Here is what you see from within the airport terminal; lots of abstract shapes covered in glass. 


The location for the hotel was part of the original airport plan, but got delayed. The architects wanted to develop a design that complemented the existing circus tent design of the terminal. (Yes, I know it is supposed to represent the Rocky Mountains, but I always saw it as a circus tent.)  One can compare the almost finished product to the architect's model of the proposed design below. Mostly the scale has been changed so as to not overwhelm the terminal. Currently they plan to have their first guests for Thanksgiving 2015.

Two looks at the same bridge

Two takes on a single bridge from Rocky Mountain Arsenal. The first was taken with my new pinhole. The second with a Mamiya 6. 

 The pinhole has a much wider angle of view and has created an interesting haloing from the sun.



The image from the Mamiya is sharper and in comparison lacks any of the distortion produced by the pinhole.

Varmint


One of the 2015 crop of Baby rabbits. This one had the common sense to not just lay out in open.
