Paul Goldfinger ©.  Flatiron Building. Tri-X collection. c.1990.

 

By Paul Goldfinger, Photography editor @Blogfinger

Like Ocean Grove, the Flatiron Building is on the US National Register of Historic Places.  It was built in 1902 and has a steel triangular frame which sits at 5th Avenue, Broadway, and East 22nd St.  That part of NYC is called the “Flatiron District.”

From a photographic point of view, sometimes you get strange perspectives, as there is with my photo above which gives the illusion of Flatiron tilting.  Professional architecture photographers use large format cameras with special equipment to get the  correct appearance.  But many early photos of the Flatiron show the same off-perspective, but they just accept the result and don’t comment about it.

The name flatiron refers to the shape of an antique metal  clothes iron.

Below is Edward Steichen’s famous 1904 night photograph of the Flatiron. This building has been a favorite subject of photographers:

Naples is a fabulous city in southwest Florida. The downtown is elegant with beautiful shops and restaurants. Yet, despite attracting tourists, the beaches are open and uncrowded. That’s because they don’t want to attract throngs, so there is plenty of parking and no mega events to force the residents into their homes such as happens in Ocean Grove and continues into September and beyond. This photograph is from March, peak season for southern Florida.
