I had hoped that this post would be a shot from Bulgaria, not another from Dubai, but since posting my last entry I've been somewhat under the weather (i.e. being ill, laying in bed, and generally feeling sorry for myself). The good news is that I'm now feeling a lot better so should be out and about shooting again fairly soon.

Good to hear that you have enough strength to blog anything :)

Like this one. Are the reflection's freaky distortion a natural result of the glass? The building on the right almost looks like a weird insect. Great results.

Carlos: thanks :) And yes, the distortion is just caused by the glass, not anything I did.

Slightly freaky and scary - but in a good way ;o) Glad you're better - for Libby's sake - ill blokes are hell ;-D

Very nice and ultrasharp look on this one. I like it.
Hope you're feeling better soon and wish you a good start down there in Bulgaria. :)

Distortion in the windows is very cool! Love the tone and lines!

Excellent realization on this job, the reflected building appears like a future monster!
