On Day 6, I presented a blue hour photograph of Ingall's Rink with a beautiful sky. This is a walkway that goes to operational sections of the rink that are underground and a part of the renovations that were completed in 2009. Some of you will notice that it is a continuation of the theme of receding hallways with repeating elements, and hopefully that it compliments the rather stark but in some ways similar photograph presented on Day 10.
In 2007, it was announced that the rink would undergo a $23.5 million renovation which would include approximately 13,000 square feet of varsity operational space as well as a complete renovation of the facility, including new men's and women's varsity locker rooms, training and strength and conditioning rooms, an added press box, a lower level hockey heritage area, offices for coaches of both programs, a student-athlete study area, new lights, as well as a sound system and de-humidification unit. The lower level interior would also be decorated with photos displaying the history of Yale hockey. Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates are the architects. These renovations were completed in 2009.
I've done this shot before. Some of you may have seen the version i did with an LX-5. Due to the wide angle of the 9-18mm however, the orientation as a landscape is a bit better. In truth this orientation eliminates some rather muddled and confusing shadows, and adds the interesting leading line on the left... I rather like it though the portrait orientation still seems more natural.
