Into Another World - Atomium, Brussels

This was one of the great parts of the Atomium, travelling through the supporting structures between the spheres. They had little portholes so you got glimpses of the sky and sometimes odd views of the structure but it was a surreal experience to be moved through this metal tube. I liked how it leant itself to a vanishing point photo so tried to take advantage of that and have a very centred shot.

Ideally I would have been at the bottom of the escalator where it was a bit more steady but people kept wanting to go up and I thought it would be much better without people in the shot so had to eventually get on otherwise I would never get the shot. I tried a different angle by kneeling down in To The Future From The Past which I really liked because of the reflections on the sides of the escalator but it didn't end up as clear as this shot did and I thought this was much more powerful.
