Balls by skyblue-13 Balls by skyblue-13
Well, sorry for the lack of the sky, it was made during rainy morning. I might go and do it again soon.
oh, and yes, the metallic sphere is actually a fountain:)
Made in Sheffield. UK.

I, actually, enjoy it a lot more with the grey sky. This image is fantastic. The orb being a fountain perplexes the world out of me. Either you are incredibly skilled at you photograph manipulation to exclude the water from the orb without distorting the texture of it, or the water portion is inside of the orb. Either way, great hiding the such from us. You did sensational work, my friend. Congrats on your DD.

Fav'd, as you should know.

*sigh* The old hometown has changed so much since I left there... barely recognise it anymore. I'll have to go back and see these things for myself :)

yes, it did change a lot in last few years, especially the city centre. But for the better, I think:)

I pass through every so often on a train, and the changes are so obvious even from a distance. I think the last time I was actually *in* Sheffield was a couple of years back, and I think after seeing the third pub I used to go drinking in with a different name... I think my heart broke and I had to go hide in the station ;)

You're probably right though, some of the changes have to be for the better, but it's hard accepting your hometown transforming with the times :)

There's something strange about this picture and I'm not saying that cuz u used a fish-eye lens. Mmm...maybe it's the color...

for me the strange thing was that I got up very early to capture it, something like 6am. Never happened afterwards:D
