I only have about a week left of driving past this cluster of buildings every day (at least for a while) but I don't think I'll ever be done with them. As the above photo represents #9 of pretty good shots I've taken from my car during my commute, I thought I'd go for a full 36 in tribute to Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai.
Hokusai's Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji are his most well-known collection, and the first print in the series is The Great Wave Off Kanagawa. I had been contemplating this 36 Views of South Waterfront thing for a while (as evidenced by this post), but in light of recent events in Japan, it seems all the more apropos.
These two below (#6 and #9) were taken from nearly the same spot in traffic, just a few days apart, but the difference in color is apparent. One of the things I love about this collection of buildings is that they appear to be a different color every time I pass them. The weather and the time of day do so much to change their reflective facades.
Number 7 and Number 8 above were taken not while stuck in traffic, but still while in my car. I was zooming across the Ross Island Bridge and I held my camera at arm's length toward the passenger side window and clicked randomly. Most of the shots I tried that with were not worth the effort, but these two were interesting enough.
