Universidad Central de Venezuela, School of Humanities.
This campus was designed and built in the 1950s and 1960s.
It is incredibly beautiful. The main auditorium has Calder's sculptures on its walls and ceiling to give one of the best acoustics of Latin America.
I did not graduate there, but I used to hang out there more than in my own University (Catholic University). I spent some awesome years with friends in those hallways.

Thanks Ron! I had not been over your portfolio in a while. Awesome shots of Yellowstone. Smile

I am glad you saw it, there are odd brushes of green in places I didn't see at first.
As you can see I am experimenting with some buttons I found after reading the manual, hehe.
I will be going out this weekend, lets see what I bring back.
Thank you Jenn for the comment and the vote.

A super b/w. Really like that honeycomb design window. Also, like the shadow in the yellow/green light.

Another good observational image with people absorbed in their individual thoughts or activities
and always the mobile phone!
Brilliant design there - good for mono but yes I see that hint of green in this.

Great piece of work, Marian.
Well composed, with great contrast, and I love the way the light makes the floor look like liquid.

I am so glad you liked the green on the floor!
I am experimenting with the color filter and discovering colors where none are apparent.
Let's see what I accomplish with this line of research. Wink
Thanks so much for the votes and comments. I am grateful.
