the ford auditorium

yeah...



i never had the displeasure of hearing the poor acoustics that the ford auditorium was known for...i do seem to recall going there for something when i was in school, but i couldn't tell you much about my visit.

i did manage to shoot this location a few times before they started the demolition, and i have to say that the auditorium seating area was definitely one of the most challenging spaces that i have ever photographed...not just because it was near total darkness inside, but there was also the horribly misaligned rows of tacky seats, and...the curved walls that were supposed to improve the sound quality actually provided some nice, crooked, out of level lines to use- when framing the shot in my viewfinder...i could go on and on but i'm not one for excuses...

the only other decent photograph that i've seen from this place is from my boy,

uhm, jon bohy....

but since his version is marked private...

anyway,

i have a couple more pics from inside, and then maybe two demo shots, after that i'll close the door on this location and move on to the next chapter, whatever that is...
