Looking up at the Geodesic Dome

NIKON D70s 1/160 second F/10.0 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Seraphine from San Francisco, United States

oh don't stand under that! everyone knows geodesic domes are unstable. pyramids too- some people say they are magical, but they are full of dead people.
i like square buildings. square is fair. you can trust a square.
(seriously, grouser, i love the photo. it's beautiful and has a kind of complicated simplicity. or maybe it is a simple complexity?)

I like this illusory effect, am I out looking in, or am I in looking out?

I suspect this was far from the simple shot it looks to be . . I could draw up a long list of ways this would falter or fail and you avoided them all ! Brilliantly effective.

Good evening Grouser,
it is an impressive and interesting perspective to the top. It looks as if you can see all round figures. The reproduction is excellent. I wish you a beautiful, sunny weekend. Dear greetings Christel

Fantastic lines and clarity!

Don from spokane, United States

This is a mesmerizing view. It certainly requires some looking to how the lines intersect each other. Nice one.

What a super shot must have been such a real challenge to capture this so superbly, I agree with an early comment it is like an optical illusion the brain one minute thinking the dome is above and the next thinking it is below
