    This is so futuristic.. love what ever post treatment you’ve done too.. excellent !

  • Thank you Dear. Actually, I just aged the photo to enlighten the exposure. The distorsion is due to my position outside the container. I did not know it was an information centre and was a bit shy first. My curiosity and my interest were stronger, so I stepped in. This is GREAT GREAT design.
