Assignment for Dailyshoot 104 on 2010/02/27: “The horizon can be a strong composition element. Make a photograph that emphasizes the horizon today.”

Skyline With Illuminations

It's an artwork called "Vectorial Elevation" that's been showing here in Vancouver as part of the Olympic festivities, ends tomorrow. Really quite impressive even when shot with a wet camera on a rainy evening.

Sir! You are ever so slightly cheating by suggesting the horizon without showing it! For me the horizon is part of my Argentine nostalgia. As a little boy I would go to the pampa and then look at a spot on the horizon and then turn my head. Many times nothing interrupted that line except the occasional Ombú ( a very large tree-like shrub) or a grove of trees signaling the presence of an estancia (ranch). The uninterrupted horizon was a thrill that almost generated a feeling of vertigo. I got a bit of this when I was on a ferry going to Port Townsend, Washington.
