This is a new building inBoston. We couldn't tell if it was an extension of the brown building in front or it's own building. We were trying to catch the train out of town.

Also, I know it's only 2 photos per post. But, I'm including the full shot and then the top of the building, then the front part of the glass layering. I thought it was interesting.

This is more of the detail in the structure.

Yes, a most interesting design. Looks like the top is lit at night, which would also make a nice shot.

We almost got to shoot it at night as the next train wasn't for two hours if we missed it. I was almost hoping we'd miss it. I love Boston at night!

Nice shots, NHM....

It looks like a tribute to the Chrysler building, to me. Similar top shape and the Art Deco details are right in there.

Do you know anything about the design?

Thanks, Kita.

I don't know anything about the design. We didn't find this until on our way out of town and were running late. I would have liked to have gone and found out what building it was. I believe my aunt was telling me the building below it is the Sheraton. We weren't sure if they had expanded it or it was totally separate.

I usually like more old ornate buildings, but the glass and the way everything reflected off it intrigued me.

For a quick set of shots from the train, these are excellent. I like the last one the best. The geometry and reflections make for an outstanding photo.

Thanks, Cal.

Although, I think you misinterpreted my train scenario. I wasn't actually on the train when I took these. Just in a hurry to get to the train before it left. So, maybe not as good as you thought. They were difficult to take, though, as it was getting cold and the wind was starting to blow. I was struggling to keep my hair out of my face.:-)
