    Excellent abstract image…..I love the way the framework is sillouetted against the light

  • Thank you Ward. I was rather intrigued by the way this came together myself. More good luck than good management methinks.

    Like the pattern and blues. Things you miss when you don’t look up.

  • Drec, I hear you. You miss so much if you don’t take a proper look around. And it’s really nothing like this when you’re in the Block Arcade. I was wrapt to discover it.

    My rule with life is to look up, and this is why! Awesome shot, amazingly captured too :)

  • One of my RB mates pointed out that I had a penchant for the upward shot, but it’s just cause I’m kinda short. If I don’t look up I’ll miss something! Thanks heaps for the encouragement!

    Very surreal. I don’t know whether i would fall up or down. Good perspective!

  • It is a bit like that. Thank you, Brett!

    Excellent! Very well spotted and framed. It also reminds me about the “Umbrella Corp.” logo from Resident Evil…

  • Oh yeah! Hadn’t thought of that! Thanks for the comments, Thierry.
