Would you allow me to use this as a background for my comic work? If yes, I will reproduce it hand-drawn, I will credit it to you, of course - the thing is, I may want to have the comic published one day (if it's good enough to be). I need a mysterious setting for the beginning of the story, and I already have a setting in mind but I fell in love with this photograph. The way you've played with the contrast and colours truly is beautiful, it took me to another world, I could hear background sounds of people talking, walking, and just the most melodious of tunes playing unintrusively, and it felt cold... but all is well.
This looks like something out of a "Steampunk' setting, a station for an airship etc. It has the "Victorian" look and feel. I can picture gangways from the two pretrusions, near the door on the right and windows on the left. And dozens of hands holding mooring lines on the ground floor. Or with a little more imagination and work and photomanulipation the lower floor could be changed in to water and this could be a dock or slip for some great ship or submarine. the possibilities are endless. The iron work, glass cieling, stone work and details are of a by gone era, that sadly has passed. You do not see reains of this sort in the states. Everything is knocked down and built over. Soo much of our past is lost and it's folks like you who make an effort to preserve it with photos. keep them coming joe
INSTANT FAVOURITE. An absolutely stunning photograph of an absolutely stunning location. I hope this place will survive, wherever it is... it's always heartbreaking to see such beautiful works of architectural art destroyed or neglected.
