The Amber Spyglass ~ Explored
Can't help but think of this as a scene from the 'His Dark Materials' series. Unlike the stairwell shot previously that looks very much like it might be in Britain, this has a strong 'otherworldly' feel. Perhaps it's the intricate wall and floor patterns or the dots on the ceiling reminiscent of the stars.
Taken whilst touring the UK Foreign Office, open for the weekend only for OpenHouse 2010. Really should have booked some of the other locations beforehand, but this was a really fun building to visit.
Extra props to the staff and security for being very friendly and camera pro. Makes a big difference when you're encouraged to explore and ask questions.
