city daily photo theme day - triangles

try
 as i might
 i couldnt 
find
 a photo of the flatiron building

 in my opinion
 it
 is the perfect example
 of 
a triangle
 in 
new york city

 unlike
 buildings in paris
 nyc buildings
 that
 are on corners
 are
 not
 usually
 designed 
to reflect 
that
 triangular shape


 i do have 
a shot 
of a building
 on the upper westside
 on broadway
 in the west 70s

 its sort 
of
 evokes
 the feeling
 of the flatiron
 but 
smaller

 here
 see 
for
 yourself


then
 to see
 how
 other cities/bloggers
 interpreted
the
theme

  2. A very moody building against an equally moody sky. I love this shot, even though not your original choice. I guess the "flat-iron" is in honour of the type of iron my mother had to warm up on the log stove.

  6. Very cool! I think it's even better than the Flatiron, so fancy. And you got the perfect angle on it. :)

  11. Love the shot! I posted our FlatIron building in Toronto for the theme - we think alike.

  12. And I love that rounded tower shape at the angle... as well as the little balconies, the brick, ... well everything about this building. Great choice for theme day.

  13. This is a clever interpretation of the Triangles theme. It is a building that does not have triangles in its design and yet evokes the feeling of a triangle. Nice.
