What makes this picture so good is the low light on the building and the dark sky - very dramatic. Has Christo done any projects in Sweden?

Like the previous commenter said, very dramatic lighting and also perspective. This is a construction project, right?

Thanks, both of you. I like this one as well. What is a real pity is the fact that I didn’t capture the dramatic sky. Low light and interesting cloud patterns made it a spectacular sight but you’d have to imagine that…

Bob: I don’t think Christo has done any project in Sweden.

Z: Yep, the house is about fifty years old and the façade was beginning to crack.

Well, you don't want to get a new building wet, do you?

Andrea Gerak said...

That's a nice present! :-))

Meg: This one ain’t exactly new but you’re right. As a matter of fact they’ve moved the plastic (and probably the entire renovation effort) to the house beside this one since the photo was taken so I imagine there is a certain systematic approach involved...

Andrea: It’s a very nice present, indeed. Most appropriate for ”the person who has everything”... :)
