    great pic Ell, but tell me something. Did you choose the title Arched because of the ceiling, or because of the posture of the person in the far off extreme left?

  • ‘Arched’ because, I couldn’t think of anything better at the time – brain-fade! ;-))
    However, your comment did cause me to look harder at what was actually happening in the far distance, and got the ‘zoom’ onto the original – a girl with a bag is stepping into the image and to her right are a couple of fellas, one strumming a guitar! :-))

    From this end the location has a totally different feel with light, excellent!

  • Thank you very much Peter :-)
    Yes, amazed also at how different the light presented the ‘topics’ – much softer from this view, much much stronger from the other end! Had loads of fun here! :-))
