Carson Pirie Scott, 28 August 2010

2010/08/28

I know, I’ve been absent from the blog world for a spell. What can I say? Busy, lazy, distracted by video games, etc. Mostly due to work, of course. Honest.

Anyways, to make up for my absence, here’s a shiny new photo.

D80-CHI_CPS01_2010-08_02B

Photo Information:

Camera: Nikon D80
Lens: Nikon Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Micro
ISO Equivalency: 100
Color Setting: Vivid

The subject of this photo is a detail of the storefront at the Carson Pirie Scott Building in the Chicago Loop. The building was designed by Louis Sullivan [1] and completed construction in 1899, being one of the first buildings to employ a structural steel frame (earlier metal-framed buildings having used wrought iron, which has vastly inferior structural properties). Rather than go into too much detail about the building, you can easily look it up yourselves; the building is on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as being a Chicago Landmark, so I’m sure there’s plenty of available information on the internets.

Enjoy.
