That’s a great shot. At least the revolting mass of rubble produced one decent image.

Nice photo, love the contrasts. The museum is great for filling in an afternoon, no matter what the weather.

*ahem* I must confess to finding the National Musuem (this shot is one of the windows on the outside of the Museum shop) fascinating. When you wander around and look at it through a viewfinder there are some amazing visual oddities… it always makes me think lots about what relevancies (is that a word?) the architect was integrating within his?/her? design…

Makes me wish that they had the old Circa experience back, it tied in so much better with the building. The old Circa was sheer genius; the new one is good, just not… genius.

Nope, sorry they are midgets in dressed in children’s clothes.

I thought they were the display at first!


I seriously love the photo though. It kind of drew me in at first sight. For some reason it’s quite impressive.

This is the featured article?

I think it creates a nice balance to some of the other recent featured articles. Keep up the good work JB.

Love it. My measure of an interesting picture is when it takes you some time to get perspective and take in the detail. Two thumbs up (sans double-breasted jacket) and an elephant stamp.

whats with the thumbnail …. how about the original picture in a decent size …

I thought you had to call them “little people” – either way, they are little people…

good image though.
