The Niagara Hudson Building in Syracuse is an outstanding example of Art Deco architecture and a symbol of the Age of Electricity. Completed in 1932, the building became the headquarters for the nation’s largest electric utility company and expressed the technology of electricity through its modernistic design, material, and extraordinary program of exterior lighting.
This is a shot of the sculpture outside the UN headquarters in New York. Created by the Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reutersward as a tribute to John Lennon. Im pleased with this picture as it makes the gun seem much larger than it really is and emphasises its' detail. Its about 14 inches in length. Shame the image is not quite central.
