June 10–14: rooftop party

We hosted a little get-together with most of our classmates on our roof terrace one evening.

I believe the blur in the center is actually the moon rising behind shrouding clouds. I like this composition of lights.

No classy affair is sufficiently classy without a wildly distorted candle.

I tried a new thing: when I noticed someone else about to snap a picture, I took a long-exposure photo to catch their flash. It worked pretty nicely.

Note how the city lights are blurred but the friends aren't, because of the brevity of the flash within the overall exposure.

A shadowy figure emerges...

Back at studio, doin' some figurin' to make a model.

No complaints about settling inside the container here! Just an annoying amount of packaging.

I thought this was a first glimpse of morning sunlight inside the apartment, since this is the east window, but if you look closely it's actually the sun reflecting off the window glass, and it must be a second-hand reflection, perhaps off the glass of the other window, as this was actually near sunset.

A couple hours later, deep blue twilight to the northwest from the front balcony, with antennae receding far into the distance.

Aha! A more concrete idea for the massing of my project, placed within the group model the class built of the surroundings: an attempt to preserve some of the space of the square, including arching some of the building up over the open ground. The shape would change a bit, but I kept this basic idea.

The gently curving Carrer de l'Hospital on the seemingly rather overcast walk home that afternoon.
