This is a shot looking up (again) inside the central tower of Birmingham's Central Library. On the outside it is a fascinating building in itself with it's unique patterned metal facade but inside it is equally as interesting.
Just after taking this shot I got talking to a woman (as you do) who was an architect from Italy who was in Birmingham for two weeks specifically to take photos of the architecture since it seems it is becoming famous for it's new modern buildings that mix so seamlessly with the old ones.

Like the way you composed this modern interior from a low POV and in the b&w. The scene looks extremely interesting with the strong contrast and fantastic play of lights, shadows and reflections. Awesome idea and execution! Congrats!
Have a nice Sunday!

Another Blake and white beauty, what an excellent view. I especially like how the lines of the window are reflected in the upper part of the lift shaft. Something mildly spooky about this view too, though that could be the title creating that, it reminds me of an old horror comic of the same name I used to read as a child, beautiful transition from darkness into light.

as psychedelic as the title suggests! Beautiful composition and B&W treatment.

bellissimo scatto, interpretazione molto efficace, evidenziata dalla scelta del b&w.
Una serie di cerchi che attira l'attenzione, fotografata con molta cura e molta tecnica.

looking at it, i feel like an insect crawling inside the surface of a klein bottle. a mastery of light and abstract thinking.

uh oh, here we go with the Geometry again!
this place must becoming popular if architects from other countries want to come and photograph it! thats good news for sure :)
and as mention in your note, its always vital to look UP while on photo shoots - you never know how unique the every-day-scene changes if you look straight upwards.
you seem to be enjoying your black and whites lately, they all look great...keep them coming.
