I really love the colors and lines of this great project you have found, Colleen. What is the music project? #915444

Nancy (Peaches) Harker May 05, 2008

Another FANTASTIC image Colleen, super color, lighting!!! #5887470

Colleen Farrell May 05, 2008

Thanks so much, Laurie! It's a music history museum--focusing on rock 'n roll and its history. Lots of exhibits of guitars, etc. There is also a science fiction museum in it. It was designed by the famous architect, Frank Gehry, and is the brainchild of Paul Allen, who was the co-founder of Microsoft. I think I could spend a week there, just taking photos! #5887488

Colleen Farrell May 05, 2008

Oops, cyber-cross, Peaches! Thanks so much for your great comments! :) #5887492
