Rafael, I have to say, you do have some unusual and very interesting photos. I always enjoy your photos, especially the architecture. Are #1 & 2 actually on flat surface, but taken to appear elevated? If not, well done indeed.

Rafael, #'s1 & 2 are absoutely crazy. That has to be on a verticle wall to get the weight on the bottom of the nap sack the way it is. How long did they stay up? The chandelier is kind of kinky to. Good captures.

What with all the space shortages in our major metropolitan areas, I can see that urban apartment thing becoming quite the thing. Do you know if they come in different colors?

Nice set of shots.

Don and Jerry, I can assure you they are up on a vertical wall not on the ground and some trick. I was standing in the carpark underneath shooting up. As far as I am aware they are still up. They went up in September, and I suspect they will stay up for a while, though the weather may mean these do not last as long as some other laneway commissions which can last for over a year.

Steve, just the one colour I am afraid, though I am sure if I pass on your idea the artist would jump at it. They could try and colour match the pyjamas.

You certainly have some interesting artwork down there Raf. I like all 3, in particular the perspective of the chandelier shot, great stuff!
