Wow! That is some round building. What a beautiful photo. I love the black and white--contrasts. It has a feeling that brings a smile to my face.
I really do like that shot in black and white!
What a potpourri of architecture, very nice in black and white.Sunny :)
Nothing else needs to be said on this one Frank. Nice shot.
Methinks your b&w's are getting better and better, also! That roundhouse is quite a building...do you know what it contains?
@ Jacob - The round-shaped Rivergate Tower is now named for Sykes Enterprises. It used to house a very large law firm, Holland & Knight, but they have moved to another office tower. (I had a meeting in this tower on Sept. 11, 2001...a very interesting "meeting" as it turned out.) Malio's Steakhouse, a pretty good place to eat, is now located on the ground floor on the river side. Spaces inside is very modern and some oddly shaped at the walls. Here is a write-up about the name change: "Downtown Tampa's Rivergate Tower office building is getting a new brand at the top for the first time in its 18-year history.Sykes Enterprises Inc. will install its name atop the 31-story cylindrical structure over the coming week, with signage being placed on its north and south sides, a company spokeswoman said Thursday. ... Sykes (Nasdaq: SYKE) moved into the building in 2002, signing a lease for nearly 67,700 square feet in four of the top five floors. ... Sykes is a customer contact outsourcing company with more than 17,000 employees worldwide, including 170 at its Tampa headquarters....Rivergate Tower, known as NCNB Plaza when it opened in 1988, was purchased by Miami-based America's Capital Partners for $35.5 million in January 2005. Cushman & Wakefield of Florida Inc. is marketing available office space in the building, and Malio's Steak House plans to reopen on the ground floor this fall."
Oh, this is a beauty, Frank.
Incredible images because it reminded me when my girlfriend and I spent an excellent time in a Hotel like that it was really luxurious and the service was amazing, I want to going there again.
