My photo assignment for this week is to spend some time shooting Frank Gehry‘s Weisman Art Museum on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.I’ve always loved this building, but haven’t ever really spent any time photographing it – with a blazing late-afternoon sun it seems like this is a perfect day to try to catch the building aglow with the colorful light of a spring evening.
Things start off well. We approach along the Washington Avenue bike/pedestrian walkway across the Mississippi River, which gives us great views of the building itself. . .
. . . and it’s reflection in the windows of the enclosed walkway.
As we get to the end of the walkway – and the building itself – the slowly setting is swallowed by a bank of clouds, muting the colors reflected in the building’s shiny skin.
It’s still a beautiful place to be.
