The fascinating façade of Ravensbourne College which is situated next to the O2 Arena (Ex Millennium Dome) on the Greenwich Peninsular in London, England. The yellow support struts of the dome are reflected in the building's windows.

A photograph full of fun: colourful, interesting with shapes and textures. Each window seems to have a different reflection, giving different impressions of depth.
I had no idea it was the O2 Arena.
You live and learn!
Have a great day,

perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but for us photographers its a perfect subject!
unique, fun, colorful, vibrant and eye catching.

What a unique and creative piece of architecture. And your image creates an abstract of patterns and shapes that is interesting to the eye.

Your photo feature enhances the architecture and colors! Nice detail. Belli also the reflections on the glass.

The interesting combination of geometric shapes and patterns makes for a stunning visual impact here. The light and contrast were handled perfectly to capture the lovely colours and textures whilst your compelling crop emphasized the graphic quality of the image. Well spotted and composed.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Brian - This looks like a subject that would keep you happy for hours... what a unique looking building. I wouldn't want it next door to my house but it makes great subject as your shot clearly shows.

This is cool, and a little trippy too! Its like a giant game of snakes and ladders crashed into a giant game of twister and this was the result, with mosaic detail! The struts of the dome add a huge extra amount to the overall result, nicely done on composing them like this. Looks like a beautiful and fascinating building.
Thanks as always

Très belle exploitation photographique de cette étonnante façade et de ces belles bulles de ciel.

Whoa, this is wild...I love it! Tiny bubbles...does Don Ho immediately come to mind?? :)
What a funky facade, and you had to know the smattering of blue would catch my attention. Curious though, are the windows tinted blue, or is that simply the sky in reflection? Whatever the case, it's sure made for an eye-popping mixture of colors and patterns. Almost feels like we're looking through a kaleidoscope....psychedelic 60's.
I would categorize this as abstract modernism, but to be honest, I'm not really sure what that means...I sure enjoy the results of this composition and subject material though. Great idea to fill the frame, it has my eyes scanning corner to corner, aaaand now I'm dizzy. Really neat and original shot my good man. Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.
Cheers from the U.S. of A.,
You know, I'd go out and buy an iPad with that "Smell-o-vision" element, just to send farts to all of my friends. Pffffffftt...comin' your way! lol

Hello Brian, It is really fascinating. What an extraordinary facade. Fantastic reflections in the round windows, fantastic pattern from pentagons and triangles.
Here three colours are used so sometimes the adjacent shapes have the same colours. In mathematics, the four color theorem states that, given any separation of a plane into contiguous regions, producing a figure called a map, no more than four colors are required to color the regions of the map so that no two adjacent regions have the same color. Sorry for this lecture, the view reminded me about it:).

Hi again Brian
Clever combination of this intricate architectural detail and the reflections. The colours are wonderfully vibrant and the mixture of shapes works really well.
mjw364 (7512) 2014-07-09 10:33
Great image - like the pattern but most of all the reflections and the supports make this more intriguing. The light was obviously right ion the sky for this to have occurred so right place and right time I guess too.
I like the two small windows at the bottom through which you can see two semi circular windows inside - they look like eyes!

Great close-up on the original facade. Splendid colors and nice graphic effect. I like it!

It's a very beautiful facade and I like the composition with the reflections on the windows. Great colours, as usual! Well seen!
