Rubik's Cube



After work I took some snaps of this dilapidated office building.
It looks a little like a Rubik's Cube. Just the sort of thing that makes a great model but is an awful architectural error in full size.

In fact it is so ugly there seems to be a perceptual filter around it. It is on a busy road and around five pm traffic is slow but nobody ever looked my way. Result. Like I say, a perceptual filter: Earlier in the day I was trying to explain to some people where I was going to take the pictures but while all of them know the area well their faces went blank trying to remember this building. The cube is clearly in hiding ;)



Standing by the door a mild breeze turned into a fierce wind and I am rather impressed with myself for keeping my skirt down somehow while waiting for the self-timer to do its thing. Check out my hair in the next photo and you'll see what I mean :)



Have a brilliant weekend everybody!

  3. Oh yes, I know some buildings like that. There was one back home, this little blue house on the top of a hill, easily visible from the freeway. The hill had a tree that had fallen down it's side and just laid there, hanging from it's roots. I thought it was so poetic, but whenever I told people about it no one knew what I was talking about!
    Those tights are a lovely shade of blue, by the way.
