    I guess, like David Lynch movies, I don't get it. My girlfriend saw her at MOMA.

    Awesome perspective here. Do you know who she is seeing at this particular moment?

  • Mark Johnson on 09.06.2010 @ 23:41

    Awesome angle to throw grapes from. I like the simplicity and the gaudiness, all together!

  • george@minimalistics on 10.06.2010 @ 16:26

    All the comments echo my thoughts. The birds-eye view is superb and as a diptych it adds food for thought.
    Quite wonderful.

    beautiful perspective!

    And 700,000 is? Great perspective on this!

  • faisal on 22.06.2010 @ 13:06

    Thanks everyone.

    For those that asked: 700,000 is a typo. That should have read 700 - which is the amount of total hours sat.

  • Irine on 11.08.2010 @ 13:58

    great shot
