Photographer's Note

Opened in 2003 the Compuware Building is the Corporate Headquarters for Compuware. I posted a photo of this in color but as Kaj noted it was difficult to see that it was a fountain. I told him I would get back for a new shot within a few posts. Well, here we are 43 posts later. Sorry about that.

Finally, I said to my friend who works downtown, we should have lunch at the new Hard Rock Cafe which opened in December inside this building. I went down there armed with my digital camera and my A-1 with a 24 mm lens. Unfortunately, I didn't realize how much film I had already used and before we even got to the Compuware Building I was out. So I squeezed in a few shots after lunch before she had to get back to her office.

The Compuware Building lobby seen here is the 14 story centerpiece of the building. Along the north edge are 30 foot tall bamboo trees and coming down and on the northwest wall is this hanging fountain. The water falls from pipes at the top and trickles into upside down pyramids which spreads the water a bit more eventually falling into a pool that steps down to the floor of the lobby. What else is neat is the pool merges with the floor without a wall, simply using surface tension to keep the water in.

I found it pretty difficult to make the water visible. I think this was my best result of the attempts. I didn't have a tripod for these attempts and even if I had had one I don't think the security person would have been too keen with that.

I chose black and white to make the water more visible. You can see the water streaming under the pyramids in the center and left. More frozen on the top right and above the two lowest triangles you can see the trickling water into the pyramids.
