Hi Daniela, tnx for Your comments!

:) Yes, I think too the same, but weather circumstances tried deny my minimum. During that morning was continous rain shower and I was in walk from city centre without umbrella! :((

If will come my another chance go Brussel again, I will try come there again and will explore Atomium much closer. :)

I promise upload soon few more unique views where this monument play's nice bacground role. :)

To Roland1: tnx for note this idea! :D Yes, I tried find myself reflection while stand under there. But not a chance! :(

Might be that was not possible due special form of ball? I seen few bright cars near me reflected, but can't seen my figure! :(

Might be this efect are similar with Berlin TV tower cupola ball? If You looking to that antenna from any Your shoosen point - You will see lights reflections "crucifix style".

I have only few my photos from Berlin, but not any acceptable view at moment to show You this effect but have look at this?

Nice shot! I hope you get back to Brussels: I'd like to see you play more with the Atomium.

My first trip to Europe was in 1958 and I went to the Fair, so of course I remember the Atomium. It's strange to think about it now: I had just graduated from university and the trip was the gift of an elderly family friend. I assumed that that would be the only time I would ever get to Europe or to any place outside of North America. "Ordinary people" didn't do much foreign travel then. Little did I know!!

Cheers, Ainars
