Here is a request that someone had. This is not my photo, but from Triangle Construction's website, showing the atrium of the Ledyard Building, back when the 7 buildings were combined:

Lord, yes. The old S-curve was a true test of a driver's mettle, especially when its concrete surface was covered with ice and one was not driving a sports sedan but his father's 1964 Dodge 330. Yikes!

Where is this? I've never seen this atrium before - it has been too long since I have spent time in Grand Rapids.

Can anyone fill me in?

It's the atrium of the Ledyard "Block". 7 separate historic buildings were combined back in the late 80's, even though you can't tell from the outside. If you go out the back door of Tre Cugini, or enter the Ledyard Building off of Ottawa or Monroe Center, you'll reach it. Cool place for a special event ;)

Thats what makes the Calder the most photographed in GR, because of the beautiful contrast between Calder Red, Bridgewater Blue, and Croncrete Gray. Beautiful man, I like how you used the Calder to frame Bridgewater...

Thanks. It's a beautiful day today, and the trees are just blanketed in snow since we haven't had much wind.

GR Dad: Outstanding! I would quickly copyright that image and rush it over to Varnum Riddering's PR person. What a great shot for the firm brochure!

This was a quick shot I took of the La Salle building in Downtown. With this shot I liked the nice contrast between organic elements and the built environment. Notice the rays of light penetrating through the canvas of leaves.

Nice^ Did you see any catacombs? :ph34r:

I FINALLY finished transferring all my photos to flickr, so if you guys run across any recent threads with "IPB Image" and no picture, shoot me a PM and I can clean it up. Please don't go back through all the old threads looking for blank spots :P
