Taken overall, there aren't enough pictures of people at work . . . flowers . . . moons . . . street scenes there are a plenty. We could do with seeing more workers!

Great shots and interesting to see how this is built on. It changes the entire look of the building. I like the perspective in the first shot. And you have captured a beautiful reflection also.

fascinating...guess they are updating the building's facade and this is a way of doing it. maybe it also provides energy savings to the building as well?
nice captures.

This is an extraordinary sight! The rewsult seems to be "double windows"! Great shots!

Lucy: I agree - it adds more life to the picture

Carol: it does change it all entirely. yet, the offices inside will still have only the small original windows to look out of.

Erin: it all seems a little strange to me to cover the brick with panes of glass. maybe there is another step later on.

Char: an interesting view

GT: makes me wish I'd been there a week or so ago to see it better (when the glass was only half way up?)

All the foregrounds make the pictures so interesting.

It must have been a huge bauble! It looks so cool.
