I love great architectural shots and this is especially a very interesting one, Les! Beautiful reds against that lovely blue sky, too.

Ahh this is a great image Les!! truly the contrast of the red chair against the sky is so dramatic. The perspective as well heightens makes it even more dramatic.
Ikea seats, gotta love them. My kids own a few :) Aren't they cute :)
