The only color in the atrium of the ISTB2 is vertical column painted with bright yellow and black stripes. The function of this self-contained block will be revealed by tomorrows image.

One of my chief dislikes about this image is the blue fringing in the upper right of the photograph near the fan. Now, raise your hand if you would have noticed that without my mentioning. :)

Nice angle. I really like how bold the black and yellow is in this shot.

One of my favorite buildings on campus, haven't been there in well over a year I'll have to make a trip.

I think the title is already great... But the picture is even better! I love it :)

Another interesting shot of these brilliant stripes. I like the other one better, but I like this one too. Hmm...the blue at the top that's bugging you is from the light isn't it? From this angle the stripes on the other side look to be vertical, but as I stare at it, I believe they're diagonal as well. Yep, it's a sickness :) I know what the diagnosis is. It's called designer's eye.

@Sherri - Yes, the blue is fringing from the light above, unfortunately. Also, the stripes are diagonal on all four sides - it makes for quite a dizzying sickness. ;)
