I scouted the scene out 10 days ago so
I'd know when the sun would hit both
sides of the hotel. It only lit the east side
for a few minutes. Architectural photography
is mostly about light, composition and
patience, with a lot of emphasis on patience.
When the sun came out again, I was ready, in
the right place at the right time.
Ten minutes of waiting made a big difference
in how much sun was on the near wall. And in
a few more minutes that wall was in shadow.
To keep the vertical lines straight up and down
I moved back and kept the camera level, shot
vertically, then cropped off the bottom which
only showed the shadow on Georgia St.
