"La Cheminée de Moretti", La Défense, Paris: a modern sculpture 32 meters high, made by Raymond Moretti, and consisting of hundreds of colored tubes. Sited on the Ax Historique in La Défense, this is a remarkable piece of work, like nothing I'd ever seen before. Although I took quite a few photographs of this edifice, the one I've chosen to show is a crop of a larger image, as I feel this detail, filling the frame, with just a hint of Summer sky, conveys the feeling of size and the imposing quality of the structure.

it's a "classical theme" now in TE - I will post it into it-, but you managed to have a small part of the blue sky to create a new vision of this colorfull perspective.

Yes Will! Indeed, it is really remarkable and very intriguing! I've been to Paris for quite sometime but I've never seen this structure. Well anyway, great POV and perspective, the posting in vertical format compliments the lines and the graphical work. Great image, well composed!
Have a great day,

I have just come across your Abstraction theme! This image is amazing. Great idea to crop it, you created another a work of art in its own right here.
The bit of blue sky in the corner looks as if it were a part of the sculpture.
Have a nice weekend
Ps. Sorry, it seems I have run out of "green faces" and didn't even notice!
