      b&w is beautiful. really brings out the 40s/50s feeling.

      the shadow cast by the open roof is very interesting. i'd like to watch that all day to see how it changes. lovely...

      thank you Buttersweet. the building was designed in the 50s and built in the early years of the 60s.

      Amstrong had a great facility in the manipulation and control of shadows and light. he loved the play of reflections from the surface of a pool of water upon a building facade.
