Day 310November 6, 2010
A slightly quirky theme this week….
It stemmed out of a quote on Twitter from someone who said:
“There are at least 10 great pictures within 10 meters of you right now.”
I thought that sounded like a good challenge. Where I decide each day to exercise the challenge will be arbitrary and whilst I may take 10 pictures I will only post one.
For those of you not into metric – 10 meters = 32.808399 feet – so I’ve got a bit of distance to play with considering I can go 10 meters in any direction from where I am.
Today we were in The Curve, Leicester’s state of the art theatre, designed by world renowned architect Rafael Viñoly. A difficult building in which to take photographs as it is continuous curves in all directions. I liked these lights the best in the end.
The Curve is based in the heart of what the City Council calls the new “Cultural Quarter” on Rutland Street. Curve features two auditoria, one with 750 fixed seats while a 350 seat auditorium provides a versatile smaller space with its own power flying system. When the 32 tonne steel walls separating the stage and the foyer are lifted, the stage is visible from street level. The glass façade encloses an open plan foyer with views onto the café, bars, backstage area, and across the stage.
