The Glass House

There's a glass house-like fragility about Auckland's Britomart transport centre that seems to me, to be the perfect foil for hefty, snorting buses and lumbering trains. I've photographed it many times, in multiple weather conditions. And when I'm tired of the big picture, I home in on the details.
I find the crazy mishmash of shimmering horizontals and verticals visually compelling.
Blue against silver, silver against blue, equally so.
Solid - Transparent
Short - Tall
And a lone walker thrown in for good measure.
To give an appropriate sense of scale.
And amid all those verticals, that one horizontally-inclined lamp.
