Feeding Water To The Ocean by Jtjintjelaar Feeding Water To The Ocean by Jtjintjelaar
The Salk Institute, La Jolla, California

This is the Salk Institute for Biological Studies on the Pacific Coast in La Jolla, California. It's an amazing piece of tectonic architecture created by Louis Kahn with a Plaza that provides a view of the Pacific Ocean.
It's meant to provide inspiration to the researchers working in this institute. And I can assure you, it is an inspirational location. I felt a great sense of mystery and inspiration, ZEN if you like, while being at this particular place.

Technical info:
ND110 - 10 stops.

No I didn't take anything out. The sky was blue with some clouds, so it's all just a matter of converting it to B&W.

I really like the composition and the use of contrast here; the monochrome really helps to highlight the geometric constructions. An excellent use of black and white to capture an amazing and unique work of architecture. Well done!
