    i am amazed by ppl's creativeness..

  15. OK, no one else asked, so I will. Is it supposed to be mushrooms? or butterflies on sticks? I think it's funny how everyone called it "the thing". lol. It's beautifully strange, rather makes one feel like Alice in Wonderland walking under it, I suppose. I like how it's so curvy and next to those straight towers next to it. I also like how you included the man for scale. Nice!
    Also, thanks for visiting my page. (c:

  29. Glad the guy is in the pic for scale, I knew the thing was huge, but not really how huge until the pic finished loading. Must be awesome to walk under and around it.
