Skyline from the Palmerston North library

Like a palimpsest — but which is which?
As evening settled down over Palmerston North, I looked up from my writing on the top floor of the library. The interior had begun to move outside, adding to the complexity of time and space.

Oh dear!
Palmerston North or Canary Wharf?
Only the corrugated iron gives the game away.

Beginning of the most lovely time of day, followed on by the deep blue sky of twilight.

This is a beautifully designed image.
The balance of the colors and the space and shapes are lovely. It reminds me of a Diebenkorn painting.

Thanks everyone — I appreciate the comments. I also now know a little about Canary Wharf and Richard Diebenkorn :^)

Nice snippet of time. I can imagine being there, seeing your photo. Again, I can't get over how "foreign" your light is. I see photos of North America, Europe, Asia even, and I can find that light where I live. But the light of the South blows me away each time. Seeing something I've never seen before. And loving it.

Sometime you'll have to come and see the real thing, Michael. :^)
