It sure *is* a cool corner of the city and I love how we don't see even one soul there. Not even a car. It makes for a quiet image and very soothing to view. I love the lighting and added textured from the filter work. It surely has a touch of magic, Ellen!

Love the wide-angle and the starbursts - and yes, not a person or car in sight. I predict we will see this one again, for sure!
