Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

The above perspective might have you asking what the heck is going on here?!? Is it a building? A glass sculpture? Is it clear? Is it even real … maybe it’s a painting?
What the …???

It also ranks in the top five of my favorite pieces of architecture in the world.

    Loving these shots, Stephen 🙂 Gorgeous reflections and architecture!

    • thanks, paula! i’m a sucker for sleek, clean architecture like this. it’s nice to see so much imagination at work. that’s why sometimes i consider buildings like this (and many others around the world) to be works of art on a giant scale.
