I thought the XL was for extra-large building. But nooooooo.

It's a nice shot, though. I really like wavy reflections.

Funny comment about stretch fabrics. I think I know what you mean and "sudden interest."

Have a fun weekend!

Those are amazing reflections! I always worry about birds flying into them though.

Reflection aside, this is a great study of lines and angles.

I love this kind of building. Always wanted to work in a place like this when I was a kid. For some reason all those windows appealed to me (and still do)!

I agree with Sharon, it's a great composition, Jack!
