  1. Frivolous Monsters

    You know I’ve never been able to take a satisfactory picture of the “Vampire” yet… Although I’ve always called it a Dragon!

    • I’m with you on that one – it’s a really odd place and an odd angle. You need to be up in the car park opposite to get a decent view. (As usual I cheated, turning a very crap picture into something surprising with some creative filters and some fake focus effects.)

      • Frivolous Monsters

        Yes as it goes around the corner and is on both sides of the wall… I couldn’t quite work out what you’ve done as I don’t think I’ve taken it from that “interior” angle before. I’ll have a look next time I’m in town. Looks good though.

  2. I stood outside of the Black Dog Ballroom on the corner of Affleck’s and stopped traffic to get the picture I wanted. I will get run over one day, but the angle will be worth it!

  3. Reblogged this on msamba.

  4. Really love the Big Wheel; taken out of perspective it looks like two small electronic components, quite the anachronism.

Let me know what you think...
