One of the interior spaces in the National Gallery has this pool of water, set atop glass panels. It's a completely different mood in the evening. It can be viewed here on the main level, or from the balconies above on the second level. The last shot is one I've featured here before, from last July, taken from beneath the pool looking up.
To me this speaks a very Canadian message: Here we appreciate nature while delighting in technical achievement that enhances that appreciation. Or something.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love that last shot!ReplyDelete
Yes, I like the last shot too!ReplyDelete
Me too!!!!!!! That last shot is amazing.ReplyDelete
Nice views with the lights.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: that makes sense to me.ReplyDelete
@Linda: I'm glad to have included it.
@Lauren: the pool is a work of art in and of itself.
@Marianne: thank you.
I'll bet you could do some great black and white photography & silhouettes in that area.ReplyDelete
That's most interesting. It brings a special charm to the building.ReplyDelete
This looks like a good place to...reflect....ReplyDelete
An architectural marvel and some great photos!ReplyDelete
This is very special. Your last shot is a real beauty, I think I must have missed that last summer.ReplyDelete
Wow, that is gorgeous. I love it.ReplyDelete
I love that last photo especially!ReplyDelete
That is cool and lots of coins have been thrown in the pool.ReplyDelete
@Janis: one could!ReplyDelete
@Lowell: I've always liked this space. It's art in a different way, I think.
@Norma: oh yes!
@VP: they had a good idea when they added this in to the design.
@Jan: it's possible- that last shot was a Canada Day photo.
@Sharon: thank you!
@Red: I wonder how often they collect it. I imagine the glass has to be strong enough to stand on.
Nothing is as calming as a water feature, looks amazing from below William.ReplyDelete
What a lovely setting. Love the look from beneath the pool!ReplyDelete
