Bring on the dancing bears

More from the underbelly of Bristol, behind the bus station and before the 'Bear Pit' - hence the slightly tangential title for this shot.


Really digging the geometrical forms of these modernist concrete buildings. I cant believe i hadn't explored them properly before

    Walt Jabsco Cheers Walt. Its teh low sun I think, and a little tweaking with teh colour settings I admit

    Lark Ascending heh heh. Blue for boys ;-)

    Nicola Jones Yeh i think so. I guess it would be too hard to try and peal the numbers off all the way up there ;-)

    Zach Rathore Thanks Zack, and , EWWW

    Stuart-Lee this is very true. There is a definite dad-dancing style that most bears have. I am not exempt!

    Daniel Virella Thanks Daniel. I couldnt think what to call this one ;-)

    A. N. Chamadoira Gracias amigo :-)

    Brandon McKinney No lions or tigers, but a couple of evangelical preachers might attack you walking through!

    sly's eye Dave doesn't dance cheeky!
  • Kit 5y

    Cool! Still find these forms very futuristic, nice find Dave!
  • Walt Jabsco PRO 5y

    I wish I knew how to tweak in ps
  • Lawrence OP PRO 5y

    Excellent shot.
  • archidave PRO 5y

    Kit yeh its so cool! Sadly we do not have teh same love of freeform concrete in this day and age :-(

    Walt Jabsco he he. You could always tweak in the darkroom. UIt's all basically the same

    Lawrence OP Thank you Lawrence. I know you must mean it because its 'modern' architecture not old ;-)
  • J-o-h-n-n-y PRO 5y
