Did you know that Denver has so many blue buildings? Yesterday afternoon, I headed to downtown Denver to make find something interesting. As I passed by Union Station, where previously I have made many images — mostly at night. This time I headed up the stairs at the eastern end of the station. The station has an interesting roof that has an oval opening over most of the platform. With a wide angle lens I made this image that attempts to get the roof with the distant buildings.
The roof is supported by cantilevers. At the base are rows of arches. While walking through the arches, a biker rider following behind me had to make a detour to go around. In this image, I waited until he passed back through the arch in front of me.
Leaving the station, I made this image, with the blue building in the background.
Heading over towards the light rail station, were another two blue apartment buildings. These two blue buildings now became more noticeable!
The rows of skylights in the foreground above, cover a below street walkway from the Amtrak station to the light rail station ahead of me. At the end of the walkway, escalators lead back to street level. I waited patiently outside the exit for a pedestrian to emerge. Shooting through the glass, I made this image.
Crossing the mainline rail tracks, I stopped at the top of the bridge. Those blue buildings caught my attention again. Here is the blue Da Vita building across the street from two newer blue buildings!
I headed over the the skateboard park, where I attempted some poor attempts of capturing skateboarders and then crossed the Platte River. Walking back through the park, some more blue buildings!
I wonder why I never noticed all these blue buildings before. Then I remembered that I passed by them either at night or during the day with blue skies. Of course, yesterday was overcast, so the blue of the buildings really contrasted against the gray of the overcast skies!
