Absolute Curve

The Absolute World Towers are known as the Marilyn Monroe Towers because of their curves. They’re located in the Greater Toronto Area in the City of Mississauga. I posted a picture last year of the 2 towers (you can see them here).

I went back to photograph the towers on the weekend with the intension to do some detailed architectural shots. It was a cloudy day so I used my 10-stop ND filter to smooth out the clouds.

  6. Edith, this is a great shot… cool composition on the building. I haven’t seen these in real life, but I’ve seen a couple images online. They seem quite interesting.

    Thanks for sharing the link of both buildings, along with this new one. What a sight they must be to come across. The close up of the one reveals the incredible vision of the architecture, for some reason more than the distant shot. Cool!!

  17. I really like this photograph a lot, Edith. Shows the details (and curves) of the building nicely. Excellent work!

  18. What a magnificent structure, Edith!
    The curves and lines are wonderful.
    Happy day to you!

  19. Hi Edith. I really like your architectural curve. My first thought was that looked like a woman’s figure and then I read this is named after one of the most beautiful women in history. Love your smoothing effect with your 10 stop filter. I have a BW 10 stop and don’t use it nearly enough. Nice work!!

    • Thanks so much Spencer. I haven’t used the 10 stop in awhile and purposely went out to use it on the weekend. I really love this filter and don’t use it enough.
