This screen is a bit of public art on the side of the Federal building in downtown Denver. You can't tell from a still picture, and it's even hard to tell in person, but the screen actually shows video. Sometimes you'll see people walking by, sometimes cars, once I think I saw a stream. But it's like video done by impressionists. I walked by it at least half-a-dozen times before I realized it was showing anything at all, and a couple more before I realized all the little pillars are also part of the display. It's a suprisingly good bit of art, especially considering that it's in public and on a government building. It's not something that'll blow your mind, but if you happen to be in the vicinity I'd encourage you to take a gander.
I've probably taken 30 pictures of this, trying to get something I liked. I'm not sure this is really a great one, but I'm tired of messing with it, so this is it.
Maybe it's just me, but this picture looks a little crooked, like it's tilted a bit. But I checked in Paintshop, and this is probably one of the most level pictures I've ever taken. Some sort of goofy optical illusion I guess....
