I actually like the photograph very much but heaven help the guy who has to clean the glass, even the self cleaning variety will need attention at some point.

Thanks. I've never thought to look but I imagine there is a void between the glass and the shade structure.

It seems I couldn’t have been more wrong (see comment below). The building actually has 6,290 triangular glass windows which takes a team of abseillers 3 weeks to clean.

My goodness, what an awesome photograph. I truly enjoy geometric patterns and this shot is one that no matter how you look at it, the symmetry is perfect. I really marvel at the people that are so talented and gifted as to put together just intricate detail and also make it so interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Tony. This building is truly a work art - there are just so many angles that produce an interesting photo.

What a cool photo. A semi-abstract, architectural image that really hits the spot.

Quite an interesting abstract! I really like the shapes and the contrast in them.

Wow, this is fantastic! It almost looks like a wave due to the length/angle of the shades on the right side of frame. Really well done.
