Whoaw! I haven't played in a while.... but I'm glad to finally have some time to spend on my much neglected blog.... Here is a picture of the brand spanking new, and very SHINY "Crystal" at the Royal Ontario Museum.....ROM Crystal

Photo Theme. Join the blogroll. Visit participants.

You might remember that I posted this for the "architecture" PhotoHunt....

So here is the finished product.....

Here is a peek into the interior of the Crystal.... It's pretty SHINY inside too....

I should probably devote an entire blog to this thing.....

Until then, Happy Photohunting folks!

Wow ! what a shiny and special monument. Glad to hear from you again, you should tell Nermal to have a look on little Rosie, now she tries to play with Arthur !

Hi Angelo. It's great to hear from you again. That's an amazing structure. Must be quite an attraction. Thanks for sharing.

Regards to Nermal. Does she have an entry this week too?

Very, very impressive structure (and photos, of course).
Nice to have you back in this. I have missed yours.

Wow .. what an amazing structure. Another piece of the world I want to see.

Hi Angelo, Welcome back, it's good to see you again.

I can see why that building is called the Crystal...it's rather beautiful and very different.

How is that Nermal cat...behaving himself? No, if he's Garfield's cousin, I'm sure he's not behaving...heheh!

Good to see you back.

Good to see you back! I do remember that picture from the architecture page -- and it fits this week so well, too. An amazing structure!

tina said...

CRIZ LAI said...

Nice architecture structure. It's one of a kind. the interior looks so spacious. Nice photo. Have a nice day :)

ROM is on my list of places to visit. I thought I read somewhere that it has a long tunnel and the crystal is the largest sodium crystal in the world: but I can't find that reference!

But I am going (maybe this summer with X!)

meeyauw said...

BTW: it's not a roach!!! It's a soldier beetle. But it was because of your comment that I rushed out for professional identification! So thank you. You weren't the only one who thought so and I had to clear that up. It scared me!

meeyauw said...

Oh Angelo! I didn't mean to upset you. I was not clear. If you thought it a roach, then others would too (and they did!). So it is good it happened. I have learned a new bug name! I have made a new online bug buddy!

See? It couldn't' have worked out better. I certainly did NOT want to distress you!

Vader's Mom said...

That's very interesting! Love those shots.

srp said...

Wow, does the place echo inside? What a grand room to walk around in... oh, yes and photograph!

MeL said...

Wow. Everything is so shiny! Love it. :) How's Nermal? I miss her na. Good day and take care always.

PS I'll try hard to speak in French. LOL

sasha said...

Those are beautiful architectural designs, Angelo! I especially love the gold one. Ano yun? Is that a museum or something?

Anyway, glad you're slowly getting back to the grind.

Happy Monday! :)

PastorMac's Ann said...

This place is amazing! Would I ever like to see that in person. Perfect choice for this week's theme. Thanks for stopping by and have a good week.

Jose said...

Is that a temporary exhibit? That thing look wicked encrusted in that older looking building. Nice to see your posts again.

Leah said...

Hi Angelo,

Great photos. I should go and visit it. I've heard of mixed reactions on the design, mostly because of how modern it is and how it is attached to a very old building. It is eye catching for sure.

Shoshana said...

Angelo, I cannot decide if this "shiny" is pretty or an eye sore. It's certainly interesting.

I haven't played my usual tag in forever also. I can't wait to catch up.
