    SIJ - Day 31: Detail, Parking Garage, 221 Whitney Avenue

    This is a parking garage. Yale had nothing to do with building it, though it is now owned by Yale. At one time, this was the parking garage at my work location. They since shipped us across town, but I return to this location once in a while... Dad was a photojournalist. he used to say...

  3. SIJ - Day 29: Divinity School Quadrangle. Marquand Chapel

    SIJ - Day 29: Divinity School Quadrangle. Marquand Chapel

    Back on Day 20, I took a detail shot of the walkway on either side of the Divinity Quadrangle. I've been meaning to properly introduce a photo of the Divinity School Chapel, Marquand Chapel. This style is a bit of a departure from my usual, but I thought the "landscape" begged a bit...
  4. SIJ - Day 28: Detail, Window at Yale University Law School

    SIJ - Day 28: Detail, Window at Yale University Law School

    Stirling Law Building, Yale University. Another pretty grey day... I was hoping for some dramatic skies, but it was relative uniformly overcast. Back near the Beinecke, by Woolsey, is the Law School. I really have not done anything to highlight the Gothic beauty of that building and this...

  6. SIJ - Day 26: Detail - Stairwell Ceiling, Yale Center for British Art

    SIJ - Day 26: Detail - Stairwell Ceiling, Yale Center for British Art

    This is the same stairwell as Day 26. This is Louis Kahn's last masterpiece, showing the motif on the ceiling at the top of the stairs. Just as he extended the triangle to the roof in the Yale Art Gallery, here he extends the idea of the square, though in a somewhat surprising manner. When...

    SIJ - Day 25: Detail - Stairwell, Yale Center for British Art

    Detail - Yale Center for British Art stairwell, Louis I. Kahn, 1974. On Day 23 and 24 I photographed a stairwell in a concrete silo... This stairwell is in a different building but is by the same architect... The Yale Center for British Art is located literally across the street from...
  8. SIJ - Day 24: Detail - Stairwell, Yale Museum of Art.

    SIJ - Day 24: Detail - Stairwell, Yale Museum of Art.

    Same stairwell as Day 23, but shows context. As you can see the architect carried the triangle in the concrete shaft motif to the treatment of the ceiling in the shaft. Natural light is introduce through a row of glass blocks at the very top of the shaft. My favorite piece of modern...

    SIJ - Day 23: Detail - Stairwell, Yale Museum of Art.

    Stairwell, Yale Museum of Art. Architect: Louis Kahn, built between 1951 and 1953.

  10. SIJ - Day 22: Detail, Woolsey Hall Stairwell

    SIJ - Day 22: Detail, Woolsey Hall Stairwell

    This was all I could get in today... By the time I got over to Divinity it was overcast in an ugly way. I'll try again tomorrow. Back on Day 3 I shot one of the Yale towers through the Woolsey Hall columns. I later shot "Commons" colonnade. This is the same building, ie...
  11. SIJ - Day 21: Detail, Dwight Hall Organ

    SIJ - Day 21: Detail, Dwight Hall Organ

    I'm shooting a bit out of sequence now... I will return to Divinity today or this week. Yesterday was rather overcast and snowy and none of the exteriors I shot were very good, so... Back on day 4, I shot Dwight Chapel which was at one time the main library but was converted in 1931 to a...
  12. SIJ - Day 20: Detail, Sterling Divinty Quadrangle walk

    SIJ - Day 20: Detail, Sterling Divinty Quadrangle walk

    This is on the campus of the Divinity School at yale University. This structure is a part of the Sterling Divinity Quadrangle which was built in 1932 and modeled, in part, on the University of Virginia. I find this walkway interesting in that it has several sets of steps in this perspective...
  13. SIJ - Day 19: Sterling Memorial Library Tower from Cloisters Courtyard

    SIJ - Day 19: Sterling Memorial Library Tower from Cloisters Courtyard

    This shot was taken from the exact spot I took yesterday's shot - the Sterling Library Cloisters Courtyard which before now I have not been able to access. I tried again today and it was open... so... This is the library tower which houses the book stacks for the library. A while back I did...
  14. SIJ - Day 18:  Cloisters, Sterling Memorial Library - From Courtyard

    SIJ - Day 18: Cloisters, Sterling Memorial Library - From Courtyard

    Something told me to go back to Sterling today. I tried shooting in stacks... nothing. But today the door to the small courtyard outside of Cloisters was open, so I went out there and shot one of the main windows... from the other side. Decided to go with a black and white conversion as it shows...
  15. SIJ - Day 17:  Cloisters, Sterling Memorial Library

    SIJ - Day 17: Cloisters, Sterling Memorial Library

    This is a hallway in Sterling Memorial Library called "Cloisters." The entire library was modeled to look like a cathedral right down to the circulation desk at the "altar." I will try to get some more of Sterling from the inside but the light is very low and I failed...
  16. SIJ - Day 16: Battell Chapel Handicap Entrance

    SIJ - Day 16: Battell Chapel Handicap Entrance

    On Day 5, I shot the rear of Battell Chapel. This is the rear entrance. If you look closely, you can see the normal sized doors set in this glass. it is actually massive. there are two of these at 90 degree angles to each other, and here you can see the light thrown by the other door on the...
  17. SIJ - Day 15:  University Dining Hall (The Commons), Yale University

    SIJ - Day 15: University Dining Hall (The Commons), Yale University

    Colonnade outside of University Dining Hall (The Commons), Yale University. My shot of the Beinecke on the 13th was shot from the same vantage point, approximately 120 degrees to the right. Commons at one time was the only dining hall and remains the largest. While each of the residential...

    SIJ - Day 13: Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library as Seen from Commo

    (Oops... uploaded this initally to my own gallery) Yesterday I presented the interior of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. This is a photograph of the exterior of the Beinecke as seen from Commons. The photograph is an extension of the idea I have been pursuing wherein the...
  20. SIJ - Day 12:  Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University

    SIJ - Day 12: Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University

    This is the interior of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University. This does not do the sheer expanse of this building justice. Even at 11mm, what you are looking at is not entirely clear. I will take the next three days to show you this remarkable building. Beinecke...
  21. SIJ - Day 10: Malone Center Interior Detail

    SIJ - Day 10: Malone Center Interior Detail

    Well, I've done quite a few gothic interiors and portals; I will return to those shortly, but here is some modern architecture. On Day 1 I showed the exterior of the Malone Center. I mentioned in the description that the "front" of the building "features a sweeping glass...
  22. SIJ - Day 9:  Grand Staircase, Linsly-Chittenden Hall, Yale University

    SIJ - Day 8: Gate - Trumbull College Master's House, Yale University

  24. SIJ - Day 7: Sterling Memorial Library, Yale University, Detail - Cloisters

    SIJ - Day 7: Sterling Memorial Library, Yale University, Detail - Cloisters

    This photo is from Sterling Memorial Library, on the first floor, in a section called "Cloisters." The Cloisters is a long hallway lined with these windows, and you can see that it goes off to the left here. This is from a hallway off of Cloisters that leads to the Irving S. Gilmore...
  25. SIJ - Day 6:  Ingall's Rink, Yale University at twilight

    SIJ - Day 6: Ingall's Rink, Yale University at twilight

    David S. Ingalls Rink shot at twilight tonight. Designed by architect Eero Saarinen and built between 1953 and 1958 for Yale University, it is commonly referred to as The Whale due to its appearance. The building was constructed for $1.5 million, which was double its original cost estimate...
  26. SIJ - Day 5: Battell Chapel, Yale University

    SIJ - Day 5: Battell Chapel, Yale University

    Continuing the sacred theme... I've tried this shot several times. Neither my Pentax K10D nor the K-x I briefly owned rendered acceptable results. Yet my E-PL3 made quick work of this. I would like to have captured the whole door, but this perspective is taken from a very narrow alley...
  27. SIJ - Day 4:  Dwight Memorial Chapel, Yale University

    SIJ - Day 4: Dwight Memorial Chapel, Yale University

    The students are not around this week at Yale, so I thought I'd grab this opportunity to shoot interiors this week. Besides it is pretty cold and it's nice to settle into this kind of contemplative shooting indoors. This is Dwight Memorial Chapel, Yale University, Old Campus. Originally...

  29. SIJ - Day 2:  Sterling Tower from Woolsey Rotunda

    SIJ - Day 2: Sterling Tower from Woolsey Rotunda

    I mistakenly added this to my personal gallery instead of SIJ; this is my entry for January 2. Continuing the theme of architecture generally, and further the idea of showing two buildings in one photograph, this is a shot of Sterling Tower from outside the Rotunda of Woolsey Hall. Woolsey...
  30. SIJ - Day 1:  Detail - Cesar Pelli's Malone Center

    SIJ - Day 1: Detail - Cesar Pelli's Malone Center

    A bit of an introduction. A year ago I shot a series of architectural studies at Yale University. In the interim I have happened upon Mu 4/3 and have decided to try to recreate a similar set of studies in this format. This is to satisfy a desire to learn these cameras and format as well as to...
