Great building (my sister visited when she was a top Longaberger salesperson). Nicely captured.

ou wouldn't think a basketry company would need a seven-story office building. I like that it's out in a field, not surrounded by other high-rises ...

Would have been nice with a blue sky! Nice capture that meets the challenge...

Good to see that someone lived close enough for this to get in the challenge. Interesting subject, but to be honest, I find the shot itself to be kind of plain. Sorry.

I've seen pictures of this before, such a cool looking building. Too bad you didn't have a more interesting sky for the photo, but c'est la vie.

That building always cracked me up, even when you see it in person it really does look like a big basket. I lived in Ohio briefly, not too surprised to see the gray sky! Good luck in the challenge.

Most unusual looking building. The owner must be a real basket case.

Hahahaa.. it's funny that this is serious for real. Is it an eyesore or an attraction? Only the residents can decide.

Hmm, something missing ... a stick of French bread, a bit of gingham checked cloth, maybe a pickle jar sticking out... ;-Þ

Gawd I love this building. I've always loved this building. You may know I spent my working life as an Architectural Photographer, or you may not, but anyway I love stuff like this.

It's a decent POV, the light's just mediocre of course, but I'm sure you're aware of that and had no control over it. FINE subject, about as bizarre as architecture of the corporate variety can get :-)
