Very nice shot! I didn't immediately see the seahorses, but the abstract that i did see was quite pleasing!

Nice selection and composition. Thanks for putting in the date ... I would have been fooled otherwise and put them more as Art Deco.

Perfectly balanced.

Johnny Nutcase said...

aw, those are really pretty! Glad you got a photo of it!

Julie said...

Joan, Ah but you would be right about the Art-deco, too. You see, both the CQ station and the MSB/MCA buildings were designed toward the end of the 30s, but due to the war were not built until '56 and '54 respectively, using the original designs.
