@Japanalia: Thank you.

Devi from Chennai, India

That's a beautiful building..I love the ceiling with those lights...It would look as lovely in the night too:)))

24 Mar 2015 7:39am

@Devi: Strangely I don't love it at all, I'm not a big fan of the rectangular blocky styles of 1960s architecture.

Tomek from PoznaƄ, Poland

Splendid composition.:-)

24 Mar 2015 7:48am

@Tomek: Thank you, I had to patiently wait until she walked into the spot where I wanted her.

jay from MUMBAI, India

Perfect Angle....Lovey Shot !

24 Mar 2015 7:49am

@jay: I'm glad you like this composition too.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

An ominous feeling to this . . very unwelcoming structure.

24 Mar 2015 8:25am

@Ronnie 2¢: Ah, I'm guessing you are no fan of the functional 1960s architecture also :-)

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Looks like the Mothership is landing to me. I rather like the look of the space myself

24 Mar 2015 10:06am

@grouser: Aagh,,,,it's a ghastly 1960s thing!

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Interesting structure. Nice composition.

24 Mar 2015 11:28am

@Hiro: Horrible architecture, much from that 1960s period is already rusting away.

Robert D. Burr from Kingston, Ontario, Canada

Great title. Happy Silly Tuesday

24 Mar 2015 11:49am

@Robert D. Burr: Yes, I thought I'd made a clever move with that :-)

Bruce from Tacoma, United States

Happy Silly Tuesday. Great use of a person to bring the photo to life.

@Bruce: I saw her in the distance and it was a long patient wait before she walked into the frame.

omid from mashhad, Iran

A M A Z I N G !

24 Mar 2015 5:42pm

@omid: Thank you Omid.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

At first, until I looked closely at the image, the title confused me. Happy ST. Now it all all makes sense

24 Mar 2015 6:00pm

@Ruthiebear: I guess the 1960s and the Vietnam War are coming back into your memory again now?

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Awesome Curly! Great title! Best regards, Adela

24 Mar 2015 6:32pm

@Adela Fonts: 1960s.....horrid architecture, the Beatles, and the Vietnam War......I guess they all evoke images of some kind.

elleestelle from Poitiers, France

Impressive and beautiful !

24 Mar 2015 8:30pm

@elleestelle: Thank you very much.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A very inviting PoV captured here as one gets enveloped by the surrounding poles. Like Grouser, I thought a spaceship was landing at first. :-)

24 Mar 2015 9:18pm

@Steven: It's an odd little space in this 1960s block of offices, from where that lady is it has an ecclesiastical church like feel.

BiLL from Carrickfergus, United Kingdom

Brilliant title! Great shot.

24 Mar 2015 10:13pm

@BiLL: Glad you like it Bill.

Baldwin Vandewalle from Bejuma, Venezuela

The graphics of the columns and the human figure make a wonderful contrast in this scene ... Splendid image and great title !!!

24 Mar 2015 11:38pm

@Baldwin Vandewalle: Great.....someone else who "gets" where I'm coming from, thank you.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

This is too funny! I love the title! It looks to be some kind of secret rendezvous! Happy ST!

25 Mar 2015 1:35am

@Elaine Hancock: Now, now, you cannot have secret meetings in the trees when they have no leaves :-)

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Happy Silly Tuesday!

25 Mar 2015 2:34am
