SPF: Framed

This week Kristine asked us to show her something “framed”.
Since framed photos are the very obvious, I thought I would take on a little different approach.

@ the Getty Center

This is a photo I took at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, which is the home of the J. Paul Getty Museum.
The Campus, which sits on a hilltop in the Santa Monica mountains, was designed by architect Richard Meier and overlooks the disparate aspects of Los Angeles’s landscape—the Pacific Ocean, the Mountains, and the vast outstretch of the city.

Richard Meier used travertine, steel and glass to create a fantastic composition of elements and the mix of curvilinear elements and the grid, which is created by the travertine squares, turns the building itself into a piece of art.

Throughout the campus, you’ll find spots that offer framed panoramic views of every different side of LA. It’s just breath-taking.

Did you play?

  10. Not only is this a great photo and a perfect example of framing, it is a textbook example of how to frame within a frame. You managed to create multiple “frames” that you can read both vertically and horizontally! The juxtapositional composition of this pic is a great example of framing and I hope it has a home in one in your house!

    Thanks for stopping by my site and have a great week!
