You could call it a Pu-Pu platters eye view. Nice shot!

Hi Carolyn!! That's what I thought it looked like too!! I kept thinking what a great ceiling that was! Thanks soooo much, sister friend!

Greetings to you, Cathy! and THANK YOU! I was lamenting over the fact that I didn't have my tripod with me because of low light conditions ...and in persistence, ended up using one of the tables (nobody seated there, of course) and propped up my camera with those little 1 tsp size sugar envelopes (hmmm...Sweet and Low, I think)!! I wasn't leaving without my shot!

HI again, Carol!! Thanks so much for your wonderful commentary! I appreciate that you deem my image worthy of your time! Happy day!

Damian....THANKS TO YOU TOO!! It took me a sec to get your pun! Too funny! Thank you so much!

Lem...your comment had me rolling! Now why didn't I think of that! You are far more creative than I am! Thanks so much for your great title and your delightful comment! Happy day!

Great composition, and colors. If I did not notice the cover gril, I would have to say UFO.

HI Robert! Thank you!! Are you also anxiously awaiting the Nov. posts?? Let me know!

Greetings again, A.Aziz!!! I appreciate your positive note. Thanks so much!

Hi Ray!! I took more pics of this ceiling zoomed out a bit and they look even more UFO'ish! Maybe I'll post one of the others too! Thanks soooo much
for the gift of your kindness. I appreciate your time.

Hi Mark!! And many thanks to you too!! Bet you have quite a few winning pics in the Nov competition...if Jim could only post! Actually, I'd hate to be the judge of 3500 entries....what a challenge! Looking forward to viewing more of your work! Thanks!

Wonderful shot. I agree with those who have already stated that it looks like a space ship.... I thought I was looking at a shot from the set of Star Trek. Could have been a restaurant on the Enterprise!

Keep up the great work!

John

Thanks so much for your your kindness, John. My daughter will love your comment...being the huge Trekkie fan that she is!! It didn't look UFO'ish looking up at it from my restaurant table.... that it is being framed this way and was shot at an angle does! I appreciate your delightfully positive comment! Happy Day!

Gee Kath...maybe it was a space ship up there hovering over my poo poo platter! The lights were cool, whatever it is!! Patrons must have thought I was a weirdo! Luckily it wasn't too crowded...had a nice time with my Aunt and discovered a new Chinese restaurant! Thanks so much!! And congrats on your two outstanding finalists too!!

Hi Gary....thank you for your SECOND comment on this image!! How supportive and encouraging you are!! I hope you never stop competing here....one, your images are inspiring and two, you're a delightful asset of the BP community!
I haven't returned to that restaurant yet but I plan on it! They also have a fish pond but it was so dirty and it showed in all of my images! Thanks so much, good photo friend! Stay warm in AK!

Hi Carol! I'm happy it won too!! I appreciate your kindness again, Carol! I liked the strong graphical elements in the ceiling. Really strange ceiling for a Chinese restaurant, isn't it?

Thank you so much!

Congrats to you as well Delores. I love the abstractishness (is that a real word?!?!?!) of this image. My favorite color is blue and this one just rocks. What a great image. Special thanks for your comments on my image they are very much appreciated.

Hi Betsy!! Thank you so much!! Listen girl...when complimenting one of my images...I don't care if "abstractishness" is a word in the dictionary or not...IT'S NOW A WORD TO ME! I ain't picky! (is "ain't" a word ;?))
Delighted you like blue! You're welcome for the comments on your image...you deserve them for the creativity in that!

Hello Terry!! Thank you sooooo much!! Yes, that seems to be the general consensus here...I photographed an alien ship! Hope they're not made at me! Happy day!! I'm delighted for us!

Hi Carol!! Thank you!! I do not want to mislead you...I have ONE 2nd place winner and 3 finalists. I just didn't want to take credit for two 2nd place winners if I hadn't earned it.I think that's what you meant by "double win".
You're a sweetheart for taking time to congratulate me on my image. You give soooo much support to all of us here. Thank you! You're a treat!

No matter how you cut it you are 3x's winner and double on one, hmm...I'm complicating the math now.heehee SO, Your a winner for sure! I thank you for your sweet compliment, though it's definitely my pleasure learning from you fabulous photographers.

Thank you Damian!! I'm very pleased! And I'm pleased for you with your two awesome finalist wins! When I think that 3800+ pics were in the pool, I feel so honored to win anything here! Finalist was pretty awesome but 2nd place was mighty fine too!

Woo hoo Kathy!! Yes, it's a wonderful experience to win "big"...though for me making finalist out of 3800 pics was already winning "big"....now I feel I won "bigger"! I'm excited for all of us here...it's a nice feeling! Thanks for your compliments...always a pleasure to hear from you!

Hi Dolores: I was going to check in earlier on "Ceiling Blue," but better late than ... oh well ... Anyway, congrats on a spectacular shot! All the celestial/space ship/UFO comments really apply here - plus, a great composition and a great eye for the unusual!
