365 Photo Project - Day 13 - Classy

Day 13 - Classy

I think many people would find it odd that I REALLY enjoy walking around the Galleria, I love the stores, I love the buildings, I love the restaurants. All over-priced, all a vague altar to superficial materialism, but for some reason, I love it. Sometimes it's because I need to visit a shop only they have, other times it's because I just feel classy.

I have many memories of walking around that mall, lots of good talks, and been rebuked a few times too (shout out to Rocky!), all while walking through the mall. Driving down the freeway I always see the iconic Galleria sign at the top of the parking garage with the steam billowing up from the roof.

I wanted to give a cinematic feel to the photo, so I laid on the color saturation with a strong contrast and finally a 16:9 crop.
