Fractured and Fragmented

Posted by
Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 16 May 2012 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The state of my mind between five projects. But the hall never gets boring for me. Pardon my occasional return to this building.

Agree with others that this building always comes up with fresh excitement every time the sun angle or the weather changes. All part of the magic and we see it here.

An architectural wonder in my mind, would love to visit it one day.
You could make a good jigsaw out of all your angles on the halls.

There is something very YOU about this building. It's so strong and tall, but fine and artistic. It's a work of art, not just a building. It's much more... as are you...

Has the machine spat you out yet?
As always, take care, I suffer from stress and now bizarly worry about everybody!

25 May 2012 7:22pm

@The Mouse: I'm still in the machine, but I sure hope to be spit out soon! I worry about everybody bizarrely all the time. And I appreciate your care and watching over me. Just for you I will come back out. Give me a day or two more. I promise! Miss you all, all the time!

@Look from Nivelles, Belgium

Sweet light on hard surfaces !
Kind regards
