  1. Great comedy due to excellent positioning.

  2. Even without the cartoon and the novelty lighting system, the parallel lines in this work so well on their own. I’d like to think that the cartoon is not on the glass.

  3. ‘The incredible lightness of being’. I keep thinking of this as airy and light, as in not heavy. Some of that must come from the floating figure but even without it the balance of materials, sky, lighting post and decorations leads that way. Despite the current positioning of the figure, I would be just as happy to have it floating free of the post as if seen through an aquarium wall.

    This doesn’t necessarily say HK but such joined up matching of lines on concrete and glass says that it is not London!

    Well, clearly she isn’t. She’s climbing that pole, right?

  5. Right! I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to think so…just hedging my comments a little.

  6. No No, she dived off the lamp standard having mistaken the glass for a swimming pool. A fraction of a second after this image she went splat into the glass. I think……….

  7. Definitely hanging on that pole. Marvelous.

  8. Heavens, no. She caught herself in time. But goodness knows how long the poor thing will be there before some cartoon character shows up to save her.

  9. The humour and framing by the stripes come together nicely. I eevn like the ffect the over-exposed sky gives.
