Architecture is always an interesting part of photography. In photo 1 I used it to achieve abstractions through close ups of reflections, and earlier this semester I used them as the subject of my “Abandon City” series. Here, Caputo uses the building as a backdrop, a stage curtain for his subjects, the two talking women. He arranges the frame the make the figures seem small and insignificant, overshadowed by the size and complexity of the architecture.  However he uses the soft blue shadows and light pink highlights to tie it all together, connecting the pink of one of the woman’s dresses with the pink of the walls and the blue of the second woman’s dress with the blue of the shadows.
