'in the eye of the beholder'... what was behind the façade is the real point of the picture I feel, and that's what we don't see.
It's odd how some commenters make judgement on picking this photo as of the day and yet cannot see that the new facade is just an image, not real construction or anything. And this is why they doubt about its competence.The photographer has chosen the black and white feature just to trick such photo viewers and of course passing someone in the pavement under the superficial facade has provide it with a spatial sense. Perfect!
Took a while to finally "SEE" exactly what I was looking at....then... wow, it's amazing how the photograph tricks the eye. Such a neat shot!
A lovely ornate building, that is going to look more so when it's renovation is complete. Getting a shot is rarely good luck,so his waiting for someone to pass by,is commendable. The facade is what it is, but the whole picture is the thing here, to be looked at and enjoyed. j.e.s.
@Wendy Wilton So it's a pictorial "travel" to Taipei happend to be picked. Be it the photo of the day or not, I do find something interesting in the picture of my city.
@Wendy Wilton sigh... the picking of the shots are getting bad every other assignment renewed.
