Using the Useless
On Sunday I posted about the strange metal framework that had been installed around the old Park Central mall. I mentioned that I thought it was pretty useless. That is unless you happen to be a photographer looking for some interesting shots. I decided to see if I could use it to frame some photos.
Probably the most puzzling is this 'covered' walk leading in and out of the center. Shade is a very desirable element here in the desert. Since this center houses a variety of restaurants it would make sense to provide some shade so the people working in those buildings across the street could walk over for lunch out of the sun. As you can see from the top photo and this last one, this cover only provides shade in uneven stripes.
