Shooting Bricks Through the Window


Bricklayer

There is a new building being built right next to where I work.  It is a point of angst in our office because how close the cit allowed them to place this other building directly next to ours.  To give you an idea of how close, this was taken through the window of customer service.

These bricks intrigued me, though getting an interesting angle was difficult considering the limited possibilities I had shooting through a fixed window, which was quite dirty I might add.

I was fascinated watching these guys work (I know, work fascinates me, I can watch it all day).  The experience showed through with their quick precision and ability to create a consistent look with seemingly little thought to the process.

I played around with it in photoshop, though I can’t say I am perfectly happy with the final results.
