I'm in awe! What a beautiful, intricate maze that forms into one glorious whole! Very creative and I like your photo a lot because it portrays the symmetry which helps make this such a beautiful structure!

Re your comment on Ocala: I hate these "buy gold" places with a passion. They are nothing more than scams. Sadly, I've seen of our more "respected" jewelry stores with "buy gold" signs in their windows!

JM, even though my architectural tastes are traditional, I LOVE this modern entrance, and I LOVE the way you carefully lined it up to emphasize the symmetry. Outstanding! and Outstanding!

Beautiful! One of the most lovely places in Toronto (Brookfield Place) has a galleria designed by Calatrava - love his work.

If you're going to go modern, it might as well be interesting. There's a quality about lines and glass that can't be beat.

Your stations are worthy of a blog in their own right. That's amazing. I'm going backwards here, catching up with your posts - and it just looks like those turtles!
