For better or worse, the question "Why are photographs interesting?" continues to rattle around my head. One reason obviously is because the photo's subject matter itself is interesting. Photographs of famous people, beautiful landscapes, works of art, nudes, tragic events (and so on and so on) are often interesting because their subjects are intrinsically interesting.

Many of my favorite photographs show people or things that aren't very interesting in and of themselves, but this week's photo is all about an exceptionally interesting subject -- the Palais des congrès de Montréal. The spectacular facade that paints both the outside world AND the interior surfaces with rainbows of color is clearly the star of the show. The lighting and composition took a little time and effort to get just right but this breathtaking building could hardly be, well, more interesting! ;-)
