  • the way you framed this shot really draws the eye into it.. nice shot.. :)

  • Ordered chaos.
    Flags, people building in the background – It’s all a mess, but the more you look, more and more “patterns” appear.

  • agree with Ilan. like the all the repeats – people, flags, windows. nice cold light too.
