    Thanks to Cityscapes and City Skylines for featuring this photo. I got quite a surprise.

    This is a great shot, color and light is perfection; congrats on the feature!

  • I’m sorry I missed your visit somehow. Thank you Kate. It’s a strange urban space and the mezzanine I was standing on gave me a great vantage point. I was attracted by the lost figure in the centre of the crowd. When I turned around to face the other way I took Waiting for miracles . I left this colour just because the tones were so nice. Thanks for the comment.
