Arenas


On walking back to the car park I noticed these distorted reflections which evoke the ripple of light on water. The sea, of course, is a mere step away and Parc Phoenix is full of lakes and fountains so the distortion worked beautifully though I think it all would have been even better if the pay booths for the car park, the wooden constructions on either side, had been symmetrical. What do you think?

This window pattern makes a stellar abstract art

The reflections appear so funky there

déformation, réflexion, c'est réussie. Un vrai puzzle

When I see distorted reflections like that, I can't decide whether they're on purpose or if the glass is just inferior. At least there, with all the water around, the effect fits.

Like a cruise ship reflection on the sea. Beautiful and aesthetic.

Maybe, symetric wooden constructions would have been better. Or not placed in front of that glass building, in fact.

Love building reflections like this. I take them in B'ham a lot. I like the wooden structures' patterns but I'm a little too "symmetrical" with my thinking sometimes.!

It's a rippling sea of reflections. This would be perfect for the glass theme for 1st March.

What an interesting picture. I agree that it would have been nice if the two wooden buildings had been symmetrical.

I think that it makes for an interesting combination next to all the ripples.
