After visiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1973, Moore came to understand that in seeing there is a difference between emotional response and intellectual thought. Thinking of this in my hotel room, I looked up at the surrounding buildings and suddenly realized the power of inter-related, geometric shapes in tension with negative space sky. I took a camera and shot a picture.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
