Description

Date/Time: April 20, 2000, 10:50 a.m.
This Notman photograph first drew my eye with its fine composition. I had to get permission to go up onto the roof of an apartment building, and while I had many points of reference the weather was not cooperating. I had only a five-minute window of opportunity, so it was a small miracle when the sky cleared just ten minutes beforehand. As with several other exterior views in this series, it was wonderful to see the shadows gradually take on the same shape as in the original photograph.
