But yet it holds itself up well.

Melli said...

LOL! The TALL one wins! Lovely!

Martha said...

I love the image of the buildings jostling. Thank you, visiting for Weekend Reflections.

James said...

Great reflection and what a cool building.

I love the sky reflection in the tallest building, there's something almost surreal about it...

Great photo. I love the clouds in the building.

Nice reflection of a very strange building. I've never been fond of glass buildings. In many cases, the architect can't do anything original so he or she reflects the surroundings.

PS I'm a retired architect

I work in the city and I am familiar with tall buildings and reflections. perfect reflection of the clouds!

Ciel: that was my first reason for taking this shot

Anil: holding up well, yes, very much so

Melli: it is the most flamboyant of the group

Martha: the more I look at this the more I really like it for the strange angles

James: the fact that it is not all glass is interesting

Crafty: I know - it looks as if it was photoshopped on

Quilly: that blue sky and clouds has an almost liquid quality to it, don't you think

Jim: I agree wholeheartedly (though sometimes the reflections can take your breath away)

Ebie: nothing else got in the way of this sky reflection

Beautiful capture of the cloudy reflection and the architecture of the building is quite stunning. Thanks for sharing.

Carolyn: this was actually one of those days of pouring rain, sunny skies, more rain, more sun...
