Cleveland Rocks…Some Unique Views Of The Rock & Roll HOF

"A Different View"

“A Different View”

A couple of weeks ago, when I was photographing the activities during the RNC convention, I wandered over to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  There was free admission that day, and I got in for the last 30 minutes they were going to be open to the public.  There was going to be a big private party later that day and they had to get ready for that.  I had about 30 minutes, and I wanted to capture some of our out of town guests as they viewed the exhibits.  After the Hall closed, I wandered around the grounds and photographed the building.  Now everyone with a camera standing outside the Rock Hall, has the same couple of pictures, from the same angles…me included.  Let’s face it, it’s a very unique, iconic structure, and I’m still thrilled that Cleveland was awarded the Rock & Roll HOF.  I do have a problem with the fact that other than a few years, the induction ceremony is held in N.Y.C.  Come on already…the Baseball HOF inductions are held every year in the little village of Cooperstown, not Yankee Stadium!  But I digress!  So I’m walking around the outside of the Rock HOF and I decided to get some unique angles.  The geometric design of the building is really great, and it affords many different possibilities for some cool images.  The day I was there, there was not a cloud in the sky, just a plain blue background, so I composited my views of the building with some cloud shots from my files.  So here goes with the images.
