I am sure this building has a name, but I do not know it. The distinctive architecture graces one end of the Church Street shopping mall in Burlington Vermont. I chose to leave the lens and perspective distortions as part of the image, since the converging lines add to the composition (which is another way of saying “because I like it.”) The same with the lamppost intruding into the lower left of the frame. As I see it, the lamp makes its own contribution to the convergence, and pins the corner of the frame down for the eye, making the whole composition more coherent. And I wish I could say I thought all that through while framing the image…but of course I just pointed and shot, letting my inner imaging eye (or engine) do the work, just as I let the cameras imaging engine do the work of exposure and focus
