Guggenheim Spiral

Guggenheim Spiral

I’m a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and there can be no more iconic a building of his than the Guggenheim Museum at 5th Avenue and 89th Street in New York City.

This shot was taken during a quick trip Nikki and I made up to NYC last October. The museum doesn’t allow photography anywhere other than in the main, central meeting area (the exhibits are shown on the outside edge of the spiral that runs around the interior of the building) but that was fine with me because I wanted to capture the patterns created by all the curves in the design.

    Thanks, gents. This was my first visit but I had been really keen to go there for about 20 years. I’m sure I’ll go back when I next get a chance to visit NYC.

    That is a stunning architectural feature and the way you’ve approached it has added to the drama.
