garage

Here's an architect who suddenly realises that "this is one ugly garage I'm drawing" and in an attempt to make good he puts up a decoration. And I like this fifties (?) car in mosaic at the entrance to the modern (grey) parking house.

I have a few friends who really like concrete garages, but all I ever want to do when I see one is blow them up!

After the mosaic decoration he even put two light to see the fancy car at night. Nice catch.

With a height restriction of 1.9m, one would presumably have to take off any hat before walking right into this greyness.

Well...I think the car looks something like an old Thunderbird...

...but it didn't really help make the place more attractive...

Nice shot!

garages are always great for photography, especially I love them to click in black and whites.

@Jacob: It looks like the car driven by the mysterious blonde in American Graffiti.
@Vogon Poet: After He had created the concrete garage He decorated it with a mosaic car and then He let the light shine and He thought it was good. Sorry for the blasphemy, but maybe architects sometimes regard themselves as gods.
