Cutting edge

One of my favourite shots of the past few weeks, even though it did not make Explore - although Flickr now lists it as one of my 10 most interesting shots of all time. The mind boggles. I have used this building, which is five minutes walking from our home, before as a subject a few times, but this is the one I like best so far. The extreme angle (realized by rotating it in post-processing), combined with the black and white conversion, turns the building into an almost abstract shot, with a fake reflection that is uncanny.
