Here is a war memorial in Singapore to remember the Japanese occupation.



I had a taxi driver tell me that the open points at the top were to symbolise open chopsticks & hunger. But all I could find with the help of Google was:

"The 4 towering columns of this Memorial symbolise loyalty, bravery, virtue and righteousness, traits of which are reflected in the traditional harmony and solidarity of the multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious society of Singapore."

I quite liked the taxi driver's version.

This is an interesting looking memorial and complex photo. The photo almost looks like a double or even triple exposure, at least 2 or 3 layers evident here.

Bob beat me to the punch (again). I was going to say, "I like this one. It has the dreamlike quality of a double exposure." :-)Great minds think alike.

Thank you for your comments, no layers or multiple exposures, just what I saw. It is actually an entrance to an underpass which has a greenhouse type structure, my first attempt gives you a better idea of what I was looking at, but was rejected as I was in it & a message from a little bird:
