Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

This week the topic is Horizontal Lines.
—Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

At a total length of 880 feet, the Hall of Justice wing of the Marin County Civic Center is the perfect specimen for a look at horizontal lines. A few months ago I took this photo of a small section of the building just to capture the interplay of light and shadow with the delicate arches and lines created by Frank Lloyd Wright’s design.

We know that the good building is not the one that hurts the landscape, but is one that makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before that building was built. In Marin County you have one of the most beautiful landscapes I have seen, and I am proud to make the buildings of this County characteristic of the beauty of the County. —Frank Lloyd Wright

      Thank you, Arati. It is my go-to spot for photos since I left the GGB.

      Thanks. I tried a different twist on the color of the sky and it seemed to work out well with the sunlight on the building.

    As F. V. Johnson would say, “I love it!”

    It is a very beautiful building! Here, in the Caribbean, i think almost every building hurts the skyline, hard to improve palm trees and beach!

      FLW said, “I’ll bridge these hills with graceful arches…” and he did just that. This building has a futuristic look from any angle. It’s what I think of whenever I hear Bucky Fuller’s words, Spaceship Earth. Thanks for your comments.
