Phoenix Building, Hartford, Connecticut

I like to take images of a city like Hartford on a Sunday or holiday when there are not a lot of people about. They can in fact be surprising empty on those days.

Hartford is the capital of Connecticut but it is not a very big city and its downtown is compact. My favorite building was the Phoenix, sometimes called the ship building. It distinctive shape and reflections in its glass walls make it very interesting.
