Focus on Architecture: Story Behind the Photo

This week’s Focus on Architecture feature photo was taken by V. L. Swan at Grand Central Terminal and was selected as a winner in the Details category.

Grand Central Terminal

“During the renovation architect’s (Beyer Blinder Belle) tour of Grand Central Terminal, I was captivated by the play of light from many of the original lighting fixtures, using the then “new” incandescent light bulbs, on the windows, polished floors and walls inside the terminal.  The ceiling of the Oyster Bar, outlined with rope lights created a soft amber glow when photographed at a very slow speed, without flash.  I took several pictures, not sure if I could keep steady enough.  I liked the graphic shapes created when I took this closeup, framed with one of a unique nautical style lighting fixtures.”
