Its dreadful Gordon it is a futuristic take on a museum and you can keep it for my money!

No EXACTLY KC - at first glance I thought it was a nuclear power station - now I think it must have blue up!

With blue tinted glass and our ever (except at present) blue sky - its a right blue place indeed.

Cheers both - Jethro

Lovely work, Jethro. Interesting before and after shots.

David Brown Photogra… on August 10, 2012

Thank you Jean - I think this building is one of those you will either love or hate.


Best wishes from a dreary Raleigh - Jethro

Love the blossom on the nearby tree.

I bet there ain't blue left for the planet. Luckily it is a good looking globe also like that ( and possibly in closer compositions too )

Thank you Mostafa

Peter your point is subtle and well made! Thank you.

The globe Sixten is a film theater of some ilk on the inside. The blossom is the only thing I could find to balance the over whelming blue of it.

You are right Ian (as usual) I think they will be sorry when it is finished and they have got over the novelty!

Best wishes y'all - Jethro

Hello Jethro,

Hope you are getting over the time lag, 7 hours behind and still watching the Olympics I guess, right I think I have done it, will have to get you to check it out for me please.

My gallery on one page.

Hi Jethro,

Looks like I cracked it, I did in the end and I used the URL you had, I just changed the user number, as the one I had could not open the server today.

So many thanks for your help, at least I know there is always someone around to help when it is neede.

Enjoy the day, kind regards. Gordon

I say Jethro,

The comments are a bit harsh, after all it is still in construction. I can see all the scaffolding around it, and them blue sheets are to stop the public getting hurt from them cranes on top.

It could look better when its finished.

All the best Peter

David Brown Photogra… on August 13, 2012

Gordon you are welcome - looks like you have cracked the problem in your profile and can do it comments now. Soon you will find it second nature)

You may be right on that one Peter on close inspection it is wrapped in the ubiquitous blue tarps.

I shall keep you informed.


Best wishes y'all - Jethro

Gordon670 on August 13, 2012

Many thanks Jethro

Must admit Iam slipping it in here and there, hopefully creating more interest, I was also pleased to see that looking on Google today for some info, to find quite a few of my pics up at the top of Google search, so thanks for all your help over the time I have been on Panoramio

Kind Regards.... .....Gordon.......
