Donna, the light was just right and you got the beautiful sandstone colour come through. The glass, sandstone and steel textures all combine well. Splendid work

Happy Birthday, Carla!
Donna, I love what the distortion did to the sandstone colors and the reflections in the windows. Great perspective, too.
(Since these BD photos can't be snagged, perhaps everyone could email their tributes to Carla, too, so she can save them? Just an idea.)
