Pretty sure that’s Cleveland Heights High School in that one photo with the bleachers. Also, I worked in Terminal Tower a couple of jobs ago, and my office was on that side of the building, 31st floor where the side of the building becomes recessed behind those little columns. Great view from all sides, to be sure.
Brilliant shots! That first one really gets me. The vividness and life effusing from it is almost overwhelming.
Manufacturers of today’s photography equipment have seemed to forget that photos can still be taken of real people, these pictures hearken back to the time when light and composition were more important than ISO or photoshop.
Nice photos — the fisherman’s nap actually stands out as a good composition.
I’m curious about your decision to stamp this set with ACL’s mark. I’m just wondering aloud, hoping for your comment or someone else’s contribution, not saying you’re right or wrong for putting it there. I understand the desire to protect one’s intellectual property, but seeing the ACL stamp there makes me cringe a little. For me, it transforms the shots from a piece of history to a somewhat commercial appropriation of the past.
