    This is a very interesting image. Nicely captured and I really like the colors.

    I also liked the essay and would love to look into that as well. What is the program you used for the essay to be able to show it?

    @crash: Yes I remember they called them The Gates - which is wht I wanted to title this post. :-) They were actually inspired by these in Kytoto.

    Thanks for your comments everyone.
