A 'looking up' image taken of the 'interlocking circles' metalwork with which the new Birmingham Library is clad.
I am quite pleased with this one but, equally, I'm not sure how it will go down!
Thanks to all who clicked and commented on my 'Late Morning Nap' upload!Smile
And a special thank you to Kathryn(kathrynlouise) for her coveted User Award!SmileSmile
This will be my last upload until the end of the week as we're off to stay with friends in Swansea for the New Year.
May I wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year and hope that 2014 brings you good fortune.
Best wishes,
Richard

Are you trying to set my vertigo on the rampage GrinGrinGrin; Wales for the new year, did Santa bring you that caravan?

This is, as I would expect from you Richard, a well executed composition; it has light, shade, colour and intrigue.
