I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

this is like 'close encounters of the 3rd kind'! ;) i keep expecting to see some sort of alien shadow stretch across the wall or something! wondrous lighting scenario -- and the structure is just so massive!!

Incredible tonal expression, the contrast is exquisite, the shapes and lines you found are without question resonant with the language of Japanese architecture, great image Daryl.

very interesting by all these lights on different areas and different planes, just a little plant on the right to bring a touch of live in this cold atmosphere.

I like that green blue color. It gives a nice atmosphere. I prefer this one in the serie of 5 pictures actually.

Thanks for visiting and commenting. I like the planes and processing of this series. I especially like the vignette and blue-green cast. Nice work.

It's a beautiful building, and I regret that I've never been inside - maybe next time.
