Thanks for the feedback on the darkness of yesterday’s image, people. Isn’t it weird how we sometimes look for a specific answer? Most of you said the image isn’t too dark. Except for Lynne’s Garrath who said he finds it dark. When I read that, I was like, “Ah-hah! I thought so!!”, and I felt a bit of relief wash over me…hahaha. Sigh…we’re never happy, are we? Grin

-----

Now then…today’s shots were taken on Tuesday last week. I took my dad to see his eye guy ‘cos they’re setting up a cataract op. Took LOTS of pics that day ‘cos the weather was awesome AND the new eye centre is located on the 17th floor of a new building just opposite the old one. Great view from up there Smile More on that next week when I upload shots taken through the huge windows they have.

For now, here are 4 shots from the waiting room…capturing some late afternoon/early evening light.

V1 – the blinds casting them bars onto the wall.
V2 – looking further to the right along the same wall.
V3 – Even further to the right, where sits a water cooler.
V4 – The chain type thing for the blinds.

Interesting images, Andrew, I am rather drawn ('scuse the pun Wink) to V.4, don't really know why. Not forgetting, best wishes to our birthday boy Wink Carol

I really admire you for having your camera on hand at all times. The things we miss when we don't! And you obviously have no qualms about other people seeing you photographing what they probably consider to be "peculiar" subjects. What do they know? I particularly like Vs 1 and 4.

Happy Birthday almost too late (It will be Saturday for 7 more house here) I love all these images, and feel inspired to look around for something equally interesting--

Hope something good happened on your birthday!
