In The Atrium

In The Atrium

And then there are times when the polarizer does unexpected, wonderful things. There was enough light in the promenade at the central branch of the Vancouver Public Library for me to not to bother to remove the polarizer. When I spun the filter, there was a complete change in the windows at the far end of the atrium. That is not the sunset pouring through those windows, it is a reaction between the filter and, what I assume are, polarized panes of glass.

The colour just came out of nowhere and was just amazing to see. The building itself is full of surprising visual details and this just added that little bit more. Invisible to the naked eye, but there nevertheless.
