In this twilight scene of Atlanta, a house-likely-turned-restaurant and a skyscraper tower dramatically against the violet sky. The vertical thrust of these man-made elements is accentuated by the low camera angle and cropping that leaves out the bottom part of the buildings. Electric light sources that produce analogous colors abound: warm orange incandescent lights diffusely shine from behind window panes, red neon lights frame ridges of the roof and advertising signs, and cold yellow fluorescent lights shine from the skyscraper above.Physical Description
Twilight scene of two buildings illuminated with artificial light. Taken from a low perspective looking up at the buildings from the ground.Primary Object ClassificationPhotographCollection AreaPhotographyRights
