Shoot Fourteen - MIT at Night

Hong Kong - Fragrant Harbor, really? Well, Milt, Carol, Michelle, and Jim thought so. Someone did mention that they were having an issue with responding to the blog. Not sure why that is happening.

"MIT Parking Garage"

For #14, I got a chance to shoot some architecture - buildings that have long been on my life list! The Stata Center at MIT is a complex of several uniquely designed structures! First glimpse looks as if they are in total disrepair, about to tumble as soon as a large truck rumbles by.

A handful of HDP club members made an evening of walking around the center trying to find the right angle (lost cause these buildings were all about angles and very few of them right)! I probably spent the first fifteen minutes in awe of what was before me. Soon I had my trusty tripod out and began to click away. 

A walk around the back of this complex opened up a totally different set of nooks and crannies - yes, I shot them as well!

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

Spanish name for "The Meadows" and is the 28th most populated city in the U. S. Population growth has accelerated since the 1960s, and between 1990 and 2000 the population nearly doubled, increasing by 85.2%.

It is a top three destination in the United States for business conventions and a global leader in the hospitality industry, claiming more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any city in the world

is an internationally renowned major resort city known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife.

a popular setting for literature, films, television programs, and music videos.

annually ranks as one of the world's most visited tourist destinations.

where else can you walk a short distance and visit a pyramid, the Eiffel Tower, and the Statue of Liberty?

Still need help – you have got to be kidding!

The city bills itself as "The Entertainment Capital of the World!"
