and many thanks
I wondered about the 'time' which I have set at zero (gmt) in my profile on the forum
as there is an hours difference shown on this forum when I post something
Its never the same as the time I posted
so I wondered should I have -one or + one
.....have I got it right by putting it at zero.
Living in Ireland we are the same time as Britain.
But I put it at 'gmt ' thinking thats ok
regards the flooding , its happening a lot these past few weeks in some towns in Ireland , and England too
river's overflowing their banks
Here in this town where we live, there is a beautiful river which flows through the city of Dublin also
named the river ' liffey ' but there is no trouble from flooding in this town at all (touch samurai : )
The river is about a mile away, and we are in a slightly raised up area, which helps
Why I mention that the water may be actually in the window in your picture, it seemed so close up to those handbags etc
having water so near a display for special effects is sometimes done now
when I saw a show in London years ago (in which gene kelly was in the film version of same many years ago 'singing in the rain' )
there was a wonderful scene where tons of water seemed to be on stage and the lead singers danced through it, splashing and singing the song and waving umbrellas .
there obviously was a catchment area for the water ,
it was just a terrific scene
sounds daft how I describe it but it was really well done and of course a necessary part of that show
( re title : )
I think I saw reflections of the fountain in the window in the photograph you took, showing it was outside
er..but the water looks so close to those handbags......
re the lovely bank lamp I thought it was powered by gas because the word 'boc' is somewhere there
(in the url of the picture) and that is a name linked with gas
also thought I saw two 'jets' behind the glass.
hard to remember when not looking directly at the picture again
Not mad about gas at any time : )
your quote >
The sculpture in the first picture is in front of The Forum, which is adjacent to the Exchange Square Towers, so it's not directly related... just part of the same open, outdoor space.
To me it is a martial artist practicing his kata, or formalized dances. I have a yukata, a Japanese houserobe, I bought in a Tokyo flea market that has similar roomy sleeves. I think the thumb you see poking out is a hand (maybe a fist, so be nice).
The greenery in the third picture is a in the stainless steel band of the plants inside the atrium.
unquote could it be possible the 'trees' were growing so high up inside the building?
(I had put 'were they 'high' inside' )
but wiped away that sentence before you received it as I didn't think it possible that they were inside as their 'heads' seemd crushed a little
( but anything is possible ..........)
looked in at the url to see samurai closer up and saw lots more too
you'll def. be arrested for taking away that metal strut which was holding those two towers together : )
you have great faith
the victoria harbour sky scene shot is beautiful
looks like as though God is saying
'I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow the house down'
and take care now
don't walk under those towers 'till you put the strut back
